Considered a talented memoirist, Emily Fox Gordon has released her first novel, It Will Come to Me.

The author of Mockingbird Years, a recollection of her hospitalization at a psych hospital while a teen, and the newly released Are You Happy?, Gordon lives in Houston and leads writing workshops for Rice University and InPrint. 7 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet.
