An Evening with Author Ellen Ullman


By Blood is a psychological thriller set in gritty 1970s San Francisco, with a classics professor for a protagonist and other characters connected by family and fate to the Holocaust. Despite being a well-known computer programmer, Ullman's latest novel dwells within a world where personal computers do not even exist. While the action of Ms. Ullman's new book is set pre-Internet, it still resonates deeply with the virtual way we live now. The narrator's account of his eavesdropping could describe the experience of reading strangers' feeds on Facebook or Twitter. A cheese and wine reception will precede Ullman's presentation, and books will be sold and signed immediately after.
