In our ongoing collaboration with Northshire Bookstore, Yaddo is delighted to present a special evening with Matthew Weiner, writer and creator of the hit series Mad Men, whose thrilling debut novel, Heather, the Totality, hits bookstores in November. Join us at Skidmore College’s Gannett Auditorium for an exclusive preview reading of this explosive novel about family, power and privilege—from one of America’s premier contemporary storytellers.

Mark and Karen Breakstone have constructed the idyllic life of wealth and status they always wanted, made complete by their beautiful and extraordinary daughter Heather. But when the new owners of the penthouse above them begin construction, an unstable stranger penetrates the security of their comfortable lives and threatens to destroy everything they’ve created.

A limited number of VIP tickets are on sale now. Included in your VIP purchase: premier seating at the reading, a signed book, and a post-event reception with Matthew at the home of Yaddo’s President, Elaina Richardson.
