David Mitchell, the prize winning author of Cloud Atlas, Black Swan Green, and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet is back with his seventh novel, Utopia Avenue, a kaleidoscopic portrait of the life and turbulent life and times of a band in late 60s London.

To celebrate, One Grand Books has partnered with Random House to host a David Mitchel Trivia Night Contest! Test your knowledge of the vast reaches of the Mitchellverse and you could end up with your name immortalized in a future novel by the novelist that The New York Times Book Review anointed “a genius”, and The Boston Globe called “one of the most electric writers alive.”  

Join us and bookstores from across the country at 8pm on July 13 to test your knowledge of music and Mitchell. One winner from each store will be invited to attend a second trivia event (in Late July) where they will compete for the grand prize! The event will be hosted on zoom, and participants will choose from a series of categories and tiers of difficulty (ranging from 100 pt questions to 500 pt questions).

Events: Lockdown Lit with Andrea Bernstein


Andrea Bernstein; American Oligarchs

Join us on Instagram Live at 5pm on Thursday 25 June as we chat with the award-winning journalist, Andrea Bernstein, cohost of Trump, Inc, which airs on WNYC, and author of the devastating American Oligarchy which traces the rise of the Trump and Kushner families, a story that reflects America’s journey from the Roosevelt-era of government for the people to the second gilded age embodied by Trump’s naked use and abuse of his office to reward friends and further his interests. Andrea will talk about the books and writers that have given shape to her own work as a journalist, and offer her own desert island list of must-reads.

We’ll be chatting about those books – and her own, available here – at 5pm today. See you then!.
