Author Nick Hornby struck a chord with solipsistic young men with his mid-’90s novel High Fidelity, and went on to become one of the most popular English writers in America. Nearly 20 years later, Hornby is still going strong. He adapted the screenplay for the recent Reese Witherspoon vehicle Wild and his novel About a Boy is now a TV show. For this Vroman’s-sponsored event, Hornby will be talking with journalist Carolyn Kellogg about his newest project, Funny Girl: A Novel, about a television starlet in 1960s London.
