Imagine being under house arrest in a Russian luxury hotel for 30 years. This is the story of Count Alexander Rostov, as told by novelist Amor Towles in A Gentleman in Moscow, a New York Times best seller.
Towles will be at the Hilton Fort Collins, 425 W. Prospect Road, on July 10 to discuss his work as part of the Evening with an Author Series, presented by Friends of the CSU Libraries and the Poudre River Friends of the Library.
This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the program begins at 7 p.m. Seating will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, no registration or tickets required. A book sale and signing will follow the program.
A Gentleman in Moscow begins in the 1920s, when Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced by the Bolsheviks for being an unrepentant aristocrat. He spends his days confined to The Metropol, just across the street from the Kremlin, as Soviet history unfolds outside the elegant Moscow hotel. This novel eloquently brings various personalities to the story, while brilliantly adding dashes of humor and charm. It is Towles’ second book, following the bestselling Rules of Civility.
Old Firehouse Books, Hilton Fort Collins, City of Fort Collins Fort Fund, Liggett Family Endowment and KUNC Radio support the Evening with an Author Series.
