Myla Goldberg’s “Feast Your Eyes” is a “daringly inventive parable of female creativity and motherhood,” (O, The Oprah Magazine). It is a compelling story of a female photographer grappling with artistic ambition and motherhood — possibly at the expense of her daughter’s innocence — in 1950s Brooklyn. The book’s unique combination of voices presents an astounding portrait of an obsessive, renegade artist dedicated to a vision of beauty, truth, and authenticity. The award-winning, New York Times-bestselling author of “Bee Season” joins us for a Zoom author talk and Q&A to discuss her first new novel in a decade and answer your questions.

Want to read the book in advance? Books purchased before Sept. 28 will be mailed before the event. Haven’t read “Bee Season”? You can order a copy from our book sales partner here.
