Jonathan Franzen at the Lisner Auditorium

On September 24, 2010 at 7 p.m., Politics & Prose hosted Jonathan Franzen at G.W. University Lisner Auditorium. Nine years after his National Book Award-winning The Corrections, Franzen presents Freedom, which chronicles the ups and downs--mainly the downs--of the Berglunds. Patty, once a promising basketball player, is now a depressed suburban wife and mother, battling neighbors and her own demons. Her husband talks green but does business with the coal industry, while their old friend Richard has descended from would-be rock stardom to building decks.
