Our third Eichler Session welcomes Garth Greenwell and Mary Rakow. Garth Greenwell is the author of Mitko, which won the 2010 Miami University Press Novella Prize and was a finalist for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction and a Lambda Award. What Belongs to You is his first novel. This Is Why I Came by Mary Rakow has been described as a “Blakean tour de force,” receiving strong reviews in The Atlantic, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Ploughshares and selected by O Magazine as one of “16 Books to Start 2016 off Right.”

Eichler Sessions are a series of conversations with creative pioneers hosted in historic Eichler homes. During the early 1950s, award-winning homebuilder Joseph Eichler influenced the face of American architecture by developing distinctive residential subdivisions of Mid-Century modern style tract housing. The City of Orange is the site of 350 of the 600 Southern California Eichlers.
