Lauren Groff - Florida Book Launch Party

Join us to celebrate the launch of FLORIDA, a new book by Lauren Groff.

Lauren Groff is the New York Times Bestselling author of 4 books. Her most recent novel, Fates and Furies, was a finalist for the National Book Award in Fiction, the National Book Critics Circle Award, was’s #1 book

of 2015, and was on over two dozen best-of 2015 lists. Barack Obama chose it as his favorite book of 2015. Her books have been translated in over 30 languages and her stories have appeared the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, and five editions of the Best American Short Stories. In 2017, she was named by Granta Magazine as one of the Best Young American Novelists of her generation. She lives in Gainesville with her husband and two sons.

FLORIDA spans characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida -- its landscape, climate, history, and state of mind -- becomes its gravitational center: an energy, a mood, as much as a place of residence.

This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
