John Irving published his first novel, Setting Free The Bears, in 1968. More than four decades, twelve novels, five film adaptations, one Oscar, countless accolades and literary honors later, Irving is one of America's most treasured authors. His stories - from The World According to Garp, A Prayer for Owen Meany, The Cider House Rules, and his latest, In One Person - are filled with New England charm, compelling outsiders, and enduring characters. He begins LIVE from the NYPL's Spring 2013 season with his only New York appearance celebrating the paperback release of In One Person.
