Get Your Friday Night Author Fix

By Lynda Wheatley | Jan. 15, 2022

Fiction or non? You better decide quickly because at 7pm Friday, Jan. 21, two book-loving NoMi organizations are zooming in an awesome author for you. In the non-fiction corner, we have a National Writers Series conversation with Daniel E. Lieberman, a professor of biological sciences and of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University and the author of “Exercised: Why Something We Never Evolved to Do Is Healthy and Rewarding.” ($10.50, nationalwriterseries.org).

In the fiction corner, the Harbor Springs Festival of the Book presents a discussion with Rebecca Makkai, a 2016 festival presenter and author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist, “The Great Believers,” a novel about the saga of the 1980s Chicago AIDS crisis and of a mother trying to track down an estranged daughter in modern Paris. This event is free, but attendees must register at www.hsfotb.org to attend the virtual event.
