Adelle Waldman

Join us to welcome Adelle Waldman to the store to read from and talk about her fabulous new novel HELP WANTED. Kirkus Reviews, in a starred review, calls it "the workplace dramedy of the year." Adelle is the best-selling author of THE LOVE AFFAIRS OF NATHANIEL P, which was named a best book of the year by The New Yorker, NPR, and more. Her debut novel was a breakout sensation -- a comedy of manners the Los Angeles Times called an "exacting character study" with "excellent and witty prose." 

In this follow-up, Adelle Waldman creates a darkly funny workplace caper set in a big box store called Town Square. And it's supergood!!

In conversation with her will be an expert in the field of business -- Adelle's sister-in-law Claire Hughes Johnson!

Claire Hughes Johnson currently serves as a corporate officer and advisor for Stripe, a global technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Claire previously served as Stripe's Chief Operating Officer from 2014 to 2021, where she helped the company grow from less than 200 employees to more than 6,000.
