Pulitzer Prize-winning author Kathryn Schulz and New York Times bestselling author Christopher McDougall will be in conversation during a live, in-person chat at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg on March 30 from 7-8 p.m. The event will also have a live broadcast option via Zoom.
The event supports Schulz’s latest book “Lost & Found”. Schulz will sign copies of “Lost & Found: A Memoir” – his new memoir about loss and loss.
Schulz’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, “The Best American Essays”, “The Best American Travel Writing”, “The Best American Food Writing”, “The Best American Science and Nature Writing”. She won the Pulitzer Prize for her 2016 paper “The Really Big One” on earthquake risk in the Pacific Northwest.
“Lost & Found: A Memoir” is more than just a collection of personal essays on love and death. In the book, Schulz manages to integrate stories about the disappearance of everyday objects with the discovery of new planets and the devastation of war, the pandemic and natural disasters.
McDougall, bestselling author of “Born to Run,” is a former Lancaster County resident who currently lives in Hawaii. He has written about the Amish, racing with donkeys in Lancaster County, strength and endurance, and at least one Lancaster-themed haiku.
