A Princeton Public Library and Labyrinth Livestream event

The lies between a husband and wife are revealed, unraveling their family in Open Secrets, a thrilling new novel by Sheila Kohler that moves between the French Riviera, Switzerland, and Amagansett.

Sheila will be interviewed by Joyce Carol Oates who will also discuss her recently published novel Night.Sleep.Death.The Stars., which is a gripping examination of contemporary America through the prism of a family tragedy.

Sheila Kohler is the author of six previous novels, including Crossways, The Perfect Place, Cracks, and Children of Pithiviers (all available in Other Press editions). A native of South Africa, she makes her home in New York City and has taught creative writing at Princeton since 2008

Joyce Carol Oates has written some of the most enduring fiction of our time, including the national bestsellers We Were the Mulvaneys and Blonde (a finalist for the National Book Award), and the New York Times bestsellers The Falls (winner of the 2005 Prix Femina) and The Gravedigger’s Daughter.
