Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome writer, poet, and former Harvard librarian MATTHEW BATTLES for a reading of his new book of short stories, The Sovereignties of Invention. "As one might expect from the author of Library: An Unquiet History, Battles owes a debt to Borges, but it’s the right kind of debt. His fables unfold against a hi-res real world, with close attention to everyday detail, in a prose that is precise, concise, musical, and alive." —The Paris Review
