Claire Messud, known for her 2006 novel The Emperor’s Children, is also winning critical praise for her latest. The Burning Girl explores the relationship of two adolescent girls, inseparable friends since nursery school in a small Massachusetts town, and what happens when one of them decides to go her own way. “The Burning Girl asks how well we can ever know our closest confidants and answers its own question with every refined page,” enthused Vanity Fair. Messud makes a rare Pittsburgh visit tonight for a free reading at Alphabet City, followed by an audience Q&A. -Bill O'Driscoll
