Meet New York Times bestselling author Mary Beth Keane in conversation with Anna Katsavos as they discuss The Half Moon (2023). Keane's fourth novel concerns a faltering marriage but also the small details of ordinary daily life. The entire book takes place in the span of just one week in the life of Malcolm Gephardt, owner of the Half Moon bar, and his wife Jess, who has been trying unsuccessfully to have a baby and now seems poised to leave Malcolm for another man with three young children. As their town is engulfed in a massive blizzard, the inner lives of the two main characters remain front and center through Keane's absorbing prose. Time will be reserved for Q&A.

Pair this course with the book discussion led by Anna Katsavos (Course 12428), also in the winter schedule. Separate registration is required.

MARY BETH KEANE attended Barnard College and the University of Virginia, where she received an MFA. She was awarded a John S. Guggenheim fellowship for fiction writing, and has received citations from the National Book Foundation, PEN America, and the Hemingway Society. She is also the author of The Walking People, Fever, Ask Again, and Yes, a New York Times bestseller.
