Inkwood Books to host event with New York-based author next month

Towles, born and raised in Boston, will present his second novel.

In conjunction with the paperback release of “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles, Penguin Random House challenged bookstores across the country to create a display to celebrate the book that has become an international publishing phenomenon. Only three bookstores won the grand prize, and Inkwood Books was one of them.

As such, Inkwood will be hosting Towles on Sunday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. at Haddonfield Middle School. Tickets are $10. Books with be available for purchase and signing.

“A Gentleman in Moscow was already an all-time favorite of our booksellers and customers so
we knew we would have a blast coming up with something. Once we had the idea to re-create
Count Rostov’s secret study in our display window, we ran with it,” says Inkwood Books owner,
Julie Beddingfield.

Born and raised in the Boston area, Towles graduated from Yale College and received a master’s in English from Stanford University. His first novel, “Rules of Civility,” published in 2011, was a New York Times bestseller and was named by The Wall Street Journal as one of the best books of 2011. His second novel, “Gentleman,” published in 2016, was also a New York Times bestseller and was named as one of the best books of the year by multiple major-market publications as well as National Public Radio.
