Lev Grossman, The New York Times bestselling novelist and Time magazine book critic, will present a reading at Washington and Lee University on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 4 p.m. in the Northen Auditorium, Leyburn Library.
The public is invited at no charge, and there will be a book signing of "The Magicians" and "The Magician King" following the reading.
