Saratoga Book Festival is proud to partner with SPAC to present An Evening with Wally Lamb, a LiteraryArts@SPAC headline event. The award-winning beloved author of six New York Times bestselling novels will appear at the Spa Little Theater on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 7:00 pm to read from his soon-to-be published new novel, The River is Waiting.

Following an interview with Donna Liquori, author of the Bibliofiles column for the Albany Times Union about Lamb’s novels that won him millions of devoted readers around the world: I Know This Much is True, She’s Come Undone (both Oprah’s Book Club selections), and We Are Water, the author will read from his soon-to-be published new book The River is Waiting. Copies of the three featured titles will be available at the event. A book signing will follow. All three of these books will be available for sale at this event. As a courtesy to others, please limit to no more than one or two books per person.

VIP Passes are also available – include preferred seating and an invitation to a meet & greet with Wally Lamb following the book signing (as well other Book Festival privileges – see the Saratoga Book Festival website for details).
