Genevieve Plunkett - In the Lobby of the Dream Hotel

The VBS Vermont Authors Series at Ilsley Library continues on Tuesday, November 7 at 6:00pm with Bennington resident and O. Henry Award-winner Genevieve Plunkett discussing her debut novel In The Lobby of the Dream Hotel with Janice Obuchowski, who last year won the Iowa Short Fiction Prize for her collection The Woods. This collaboration with the Ilsley Library has proven to be an extraordinary opportunity for readers and aspiring writers both to join in an intimate setting and share ideas and observations. 

Some praise for Plunkett:
“Genevieve Plunkett’s In the Lobby of the Dream Hotel is an engrossing read that takes readers into the heart of what it means to be a mother, a wife, a creative being, a human with a heart that longs for more. Plunkett’s prose sparkles in every paragraph and kept me turning the pages long after my bedtime. Most importantly, her nuanced treatment of the decisions that people managing mental illness must make every day will comfort, inspire, entertain, and enlighten readers.” --Christie Tate, New York Times bestselling author of Group.
“In the Lobby of the Dream Hotel is a spellbinding novel, alive with feeling and discovery. Plunkett orchestrates an enrapturing story of a woman and mother tethered to a reality she would rather escape with bold jumps in time, nuanced observation, and flights of imagination. A book as much about the mundanities that trap us as it is about creativity’s promise of freedom, In the Lobby of the Dream Hotel is an absolutely brilliant feat. I can’t wait to see what Plunkett does next.”
—Rachel Yoder, author of Nightbitch
