The Vancouver Writers Fest and Penguin Random House present:

An Evening with John Irving
In Conversation with Hal Wake

Join us on December 1 as international bestselling author John Irving reads from his highly-anticipated new novel, Avenue of Mysteries.

In Avenue of Mysteries, an absorbing novel of fate and memory, Irving returns to the themes that established him as one of our most admired and beloved authors. Juan Diego’s younger sister Lupe is a mind reader: she knows what most people are thinking and she think she sees her and her brother’s futures. However, believing you know the future is a terrible burden, especially when it’s your own future or the future of someone you love. What might a young girl be driven to do if she thought she could change the future? Told through Juan Diego’s recollections as an adult, Avenue of Mysteries explores what happens when the past, present and future collide.
