Brooklyn by the Book: Stoner: Ruth Rendell Talks about the Best Book You've Never Read
Dweck Center at the Brooklyn Public Library, Central Library
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:

Rendell discusses Stoner, John Williams's remarkable 1965 novel about an obscure academic named William Stoner who endures a series of personal and professional agonies. Stoner emerges from this quiet novel not only as an archetypal American, but as an unlikely existential hero. Recently reprinted, the novel has become a best-seller in Europe.

Ruth Rendell has won three Edgar Awards, the highest accolade from Mystery Writers of America, as well as four Gold Daggers and a Diamond Dagger for outstanding contribution to the genre from England's prestigious Crime Writers' Association. Her remarkable career has spanned more than fifty years, with more than sixty books published. Books will be sold at this event.
