Around Town: Jeanette Winterson at McNally Jackson

McNally Jackson is an independent bookstore, opportunely located on Prince Street in NYC.  Along with their two floors of books, McNally Jackson boasts a full calendar of events and a bustling cafe.  Aspiring to be a hub of Manhattan’s literary culture, McNally Jackson takes a unique approach to layout and arranges their books by nation.

Join McNally Jackson on Wednesday, March 22nd, at 7:00 PM for an evening with Jeanette Winterson.  Her new novel, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, was published this March by Grove Press.  Publishers Weekly gave the novel a starred review, calling it “Raw . . . A highly unusual, scrupulously honest, and endearing memoir.”  Winterson is the acclaimed author of several books, including her internationally best-selling first novel, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit.
