Tuesday 10/15, 7 pm

Jack Callahan is an outsider in his adopted hometown of Raleigh. A successful lawyer, he's spent years trying to move in all the right circles. But with his mother in a sanitarium, his marriage on the rocks, and his biggest clientRaleigh's largest independent newspaper⁠—facing an increasingly hostile takeover, he's beginning to wonder if it's really been worth it. Set in the 1990s, All the Right Circles explores themes of race, class, and money in a world where virtue often proves elusive in the presence of money and power.

John Russell is the author of the prize-winning novel Favorite Sons, which the New York Times heralded as “…a novel of ideas sweeping grandly through more than 40 years of Southern history.” Russell worked in the publishing industry, and has served in law firms, private industry, and government. He holds degrees from the University of North Carolina, Columbia University, and Harvard Law School. He and his wife divide time between North Carolina and Mexico.
