Alachua County Library District’s 2017 Author Series presents Nathan Hill on Sunday, June 4, 2 p.m. at Headquarters Library, 401 E. University Avenue. New literary talent Nathan Hill also kicks off the Summer at the Library program. He will talk about his debut novel and sign books afterward.

Hill’s debut novel The Nix, is a book about sixties-era politics and strained mother-child relations. It was named the #1 Book of the Year by Audible and Entertainment Weekly, as well as one of the year’s best books by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Amazon, Newsday, Library Journal and many others. The Nix was a finalist for the Leonard Award from the National Book Critics Circle for Best Debut of 2016. From the suburban Midwest to New York City to the 1968 riots that rocked Chicago, and beyond, The Nix explores — with sharp humor and a fierce tenderness — the resilience of love and home, even in times of radical change. Hill has been compared to John Irving, Charles Dickens and Thomas Pynchon as well.
