Join us with novelist Adrienne Brodeur for a delicious lunch inspired by her memoir, Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me.

In Wild Game, Adrienne Brodeur chronicles life of living in the thrall of her magnetic, complicated mother, and the chilling consequences of her complicity. When Adrienne was fourteen, her mother woke her at midnight with a secret that would change the course of their lives forever: her husband's best friend, Ben, had just kissed her. Adrienne found herself thrust into the role of accomplice to the couple's infidelity as Malabar and Ben began an affair that would span decades. Keeping a secret of such magnitude had a colossal effect on Brodeur's life and her relationships with her stepfather, her brother, and eventually her own husband. Only years later did she find the strength to embrace her life—and her mother—on her own terms.

Wild Game is the next memoir for those who loved The Glass Castle and its depictions of a complex family bond at once loving and corrosive.
