ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On. Nov. 9, New York Times best-selling author André Aciman will speak about his latest novel at Rackham Auditorium. 

Presented by Literati Bookstore, Aciman will be joined in conversation by writer Zahir Janmohamed -- a Rackham Merit Fellow at the Helen Zell Writers' Program at the University of Michigan. Following the conversation, Aciman will answer audience questions, as well as sign copies of his novel. 

Aciman's novel, "Find Me," is a follow-up to his 2007 novel, "Call Me By Your Name," which was adapted into a 2017 Academy Award-winning film. 

According to the novel's website,

"In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio's father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami's plans and changes his life forever.
 

Elio soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a New England college professor with a family, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return trip across the Atlantic. "
