Author Stephen Harrigan will be in conversation with Lou Berney about Hariigan's new novel, The Leopard Is Loose.

The fragile, 1952 postwar tranquility of a young boy’s world explodes one summer day when a leopard escapes from the Oklahoma City zoo, throwing all the local residents into dangerous excitement, in this evocative story of a child’s confrontation with his deepest fears.

The Leopard Is Loose is an encapsulation of America in the 1950s, and a moving portrait of a boy’s struggle to find his place in the world.
