Lyndsay Faye in conversation with Karina Carrasco on The Paragon Hotel

Lyndsay Faye in conversation with Karina Carrasco on The Paragon Hotel

12:00 AM

Join us on Thursday, January 24th at 7pm to celebrate the launch of Lyndsay Faye’s newest novel, The Paragon Hotel. In Lyndsay Faye’s intricate new book, a gutsy gun moll flees Prohibition-era Harlem for Oregon’s elegant Paragon Hotel, where the exclusively black residents and a chilling missing child crisis unlock new worlds she couldn’t have imagined. Lyndsay will be joined by Karina Carrasco, author of The Best Bad Things.

From the critically-acclaimed author of Jane Steele and The Gods of Gotham trilogy comes The Paragon Hotel, a “riveting multilevel thriller” (Kirkus) with up-to-the-moment parallels to what is happening in America today. Inventive and meticulously crafted, The Paragon Hotel brilliantly captures mob-controlled Harlem in the early twentieth century (“A world in which the monsters were the monarchs”), as well as the terror of being black in segregated, racist Portland, circa 1921. In Lyndsay Faye’s capable hands, the book’s indelible characters and startling historical detail recreate a bygone era completely relevant to today’s social issues. The result is a mesmerizing tale reaffirming Faye’s reputation as a master storyteller.

Multi-Edgar nominee Lyndsay Faye is the author of five critically acclaimed books, most recently Jane Steele. A true New Yorker in the sense that she was born elsewhere, Faye lives in New York City with her husband, Gabriel.

Katrina Carrasco holds an MFA in fiction from Portland State University, where she received the Tom and Phyllis Burnam Graduate Fiction Scholarship and the Tom Doulis Graduate Fiction Writing Award. Her work has appeared in Witness magazine, Post Road Magazine, Quaint Magazine, and other journals. The Best Bad Things is her first novel.
