Book Signing and Presentation of "The Dutch House" by Ann Patchett

Wed, Oct 16, 7:30 - 9:00 pm

Location: Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton

Patchett joins the Foundation to share The Dutch House, a novel about two closely bonded siblings whose past has the imprisoning quality of quicksand. Danny and Maeve were born to a poor WWII veteran who gained wealth through an empire of real estate, but the family home he purchased for his wife becomes a cornerstone of misery for the siblings when their stepmother throws them out into poverty. Over five decades, the suspenseful story of their reckoning with that old house unfolds.
