Book Discussion & Celebration: Mona Simpson’s Commitment
Where: Kaplan Hall 193
Join UCLA English for a book discussion and reception to celebrate Professor Mona Simpson’s new novel, Commitment.
Commitment is a resonant novel about family and duty and the attendant struggles that come when a parent falls ill. The novel honors the spirit of fragile, imperfect mothers and the under-chronicled significance of friends, in determining the lives of our children left on their own. With Commitment, Mona Simpson, one of the foremost chroniclers of the American family in our time, has written her most important and unforgettable novel.
Creative writing colleagues Justin Torres, Fred D’Aguiar, and Michelle Huneven will lead the discussion. Light refreshments will follow the event. Please join us to celebrate Mona and her new work!
