Tonight at 7pm, Ann Morgan will celebrate the release of her latest book, The World Between Two Covers at our 112th store. 

Ann Morgan writes in the opening of The World Between Two Covers, "I glanced up at my bookshelves, the proud record of more than twenty years of reading, and found a host of English and North American greats starting down at me I had barely touched a work by a foreign language author in years The awful truth dawned. I was a literary xenophobe."
