Please join us for this lunchtime reading (we used to do these with some frequency when in Pioneer Square), as novelist Courtney Maum visits with her new novel, Touch (G.P. Putnam’s Sons).

“Our modern world is at once hyper-connected and hyper-alienating, and in this magical/terrible time, Courtney Maum’s latest novel offers us a balm, a solution, a call to action, or, at the very least, time away from our smartphones to read a compelling, perceptive, and moving story about the state of human intimacy and love in our contemporary era. Touch is at once wry and sincere, funny and serious, and you won’t be able to put it down.”—Edan Lepucki.

“Courtney Maum has somehow written a provocative meditation on human interaction in the technological age and a fun, touching beach read. I can’t wait for it to spark all kinds of unexpected vacation discussions!”—Jade Chang.

Courtney Maum’s previous novel was the delightful I am Having So Much Fun Here Without You.
