Norah Labiner at Magers & Quinn

Minneapolis’ own Norah Labiner will be at Magers & Quinn Booksellers on Thursday, September 3, at 7:30pm, to read from her latest novel German for Travelers

Alternating between the great doctor’s household, the mysterious case of his patient Elsa Z., the rise of Nazi Germany, mid-century Detroit, and modern-day Berlin, this is a story about a girl whose dreams reveal the future, a family beset by ghosts, and the place that haunts them all.

Acclaimed for her ability to write “heartbreaking and vastly original tale[s] of literary intrigue” (Time Out New York), Norah Labiner is the author of three novels including German for Travelers, Our Sometime Sister, a finalist for the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award, and Miniatures, an American Library Association Notable Book, a Minnesota Book Award winner, and a selection for both the Minnesota Monthly and Utne Reader bookclubs. She lives in Minneapolis.
