Come to an Ice cream Social to kick-off National Library Week
Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon to appear at Cleveland Public Library
Chabon emerged on the literary scene with his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, which was originally written for his master's thesis at UC Irvine and became a national bestseller. His second novel, Wonder Boys, about a frustrated novelist, also reached bestseller status and was made into a film starring Michael Douglas and Tobey McGuire. But it was his third novel, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, which depicts an illustrator and writer in the comic book world of the 1930's and 40's, that won him fame and the 2001 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, among other notable awards.
Among his novels, Chabon also has authored two collections of short stories including A Model World and Other Stories and Werewolves in Their Youth. He's currently working on a new novel, The Yiddish Policeman's Union, a thriller set in an imaginary world inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt's short-lived plan during WWII to create a Jewish homeland in Alaska, rather than the Middle East.
Throughout his novels and short stories, divorce, fatherhood, and single parenthood became repeated themes, drawing upon his parents divorce when he was 11 years old. Chabon, born in Washington D.C., and raised in Columbia, Maryland, also draws on his Jewish heritage in his novels. His 2004 novella, The Final Solution, was awarded the 2005 Jewish Book Award. Chabon lives with his wife Ayelet Waldman, also a novelist, in Berkley, California. For more information, call 216-623-2800.
