Get ready for what might be one of the steamiest literary events of the summer when Susan Choi reads from her fourth novel, My Education. Her story follows a young graduate student, Regina, as she pursues professor Nicholas Brodeur, a handsome man who is infamous on campus for his affairs with his students. However, it’s not the professor she ends up with, but the person closest to him. Known for her heavily researched historical novels, including American Woman (a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize), Choi skipped the library this time to explore the unsustainable nature of white-hot passion for her most erotic work to date.
