ATLANTA -- Writer Anna Quindlen will read from her seventh novel, Still Life with Bread Crumbs, at the Carter Center next month.

Quindlen is a former New York Times columnist who won a Pulitzer Prize for her work. She left the paper in 1995 to become a novelist. One of her books, One True Thing, was made into a major motion picture starring Meryl Streep and Renée Zellweger.

She will read from Still Life with Bread Crumbs on Thursday, Mar. 13 at 7 p.m.

The novel "begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof," according to A Cappella Books, which is sponsoring Quindlen's visit to Atlanta:

Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.

Tickets for Quindlen's reading are $28 and include a signed copy of Still Life with Bread Crumbs. Visit acappellabooks.com for more information and to buy tickets.

The Carter Center is located at 453 Freedom Parkway.
