Please join us for a special evening with André Aciman, a Library of Congress National Book Festival Presents event, for the launch of his new book, Find Me, the sequel to his bestselling Call Me By Your Name, which was made into an Academy Award-winning film.

André Aciman is the New York Times-bestselling author of Call Me by Your Name, Enigma Variations, Out of Egypt, Eight White Nights, False Papers, Alibis, Harvard Square, and the editor of The Proust Project. He teaches comparative literature at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He lives with his wife in Manhattan.

To join the signing line for this event and meet André Aciman, attendees must purchase a copy of his latest book Find Me when registering for a ticket or onsite at the event. Other André Aciman books will be available for purchase at the event. No memorabilia or books from home will be signed.

The event is free and open to the public; however, tickets are required for entry. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. A ticket does not guarantee entry into the event.

When the auditorium reaches capacity, some ticketed guests may be seated in an overflow location and view the program on screens.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of house management. We recommend arriving when doors open.

Arrive early! Ticket holders will be invited to view a display of items from the Library’s extensive music collection, including pieces directly referenced in Aciman’s bestselling books. The display will be available for viewing from 6:00pm – 7:00pm on the night of the program.
