Steven Rowley, winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor, returns with The Guncle Abroad, a charming sequel to his bestseller, The Guncle. Rowley will be in conversation with Bradly Pritchett, Chief Experience Officer at the DMA.

It has been five years since Patrick O’Hara spent the summer caring for his young niece and nephew after their mother’s passing. When his brother announces he’s getting remarried in Italy, the now moody young teens are not thrilled. As they travel through Europe on their way to the wedding, Patrick tries his best to help them understand love, much as he once helped them comprehend grief. But when they arrive in Italy, Patrick is overextended managing a groom with cold feet, a recklessly flirtatious sister, and a growing rivalry with the kids’ charming soon-to-be-launt (lesbian aunt), all culminating in a disastrous rehearsal dinner.

Using his signature blend of humor and heart, Rowley charms with a story about the complicated bonds of family, love, and what it takes to rediscover yourself, even at the ripe age of 50.
