In an Appalachian coal mining town, Yelena is the first American born in her family. Before the night’s bedtime story, Ma asks “Russian ending or American ending?” This refrain haunts American Ending, a gritty darkly humorous tale of immigration, a worldwide pandemic, and the fragility of citizenship—100 years ago. American Ending has been featured on Oprah Daily, The Daily Beast, Publishers Weekly, and more.

Mary Kay Zuravleff is joining us on the Busboys stage in conversation with Louis Bayard. Copies of the book will be available for purchase during and after the event, and Zuravleff will be signing following the program.

This event is free and open to all. The room will be reserved starting at 6:00 pm for an hour of cocktails and mingling to discuss the book amongst participants; the program itself will begin at 7:00 pm, and will be followed by an audience Q&A. Copies of AMERICAN ENDING will be available for purchase before and after the event. Please note that this event is IN PERSON and will NOT be livestreamed.

We ask that guests RSVP in order to receive direct updates about the event from Busboys and Poets Books.
