Join The Regret-In

Regret-In(3.6) ‘Not About The Buildings’ invites you to hear a sad but brief National Book Award winner read aloud.

The Providence Athenaeum will host The Regret-In, a marathon reading of William Maxwell’s autobiographical novel So Long, See You Tomorrow. Set in Illinois, the book looks at a middle-aged man investigating the 1920 murder of his lonely childhood friend’s father. The two boys were only briefly acquainted, but the story of their short time together is enough to haunt the narrator for decades to come.

Sign up when you arrive to read a few pages yourself, or else just sit back and listen to the beautiful power of the spoken word.

Refreshments at 5pm.

5:30pm, Tuesday, March 6, Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street
