Despite the title, Amor Towles’ Rules of Civility is not a book about manners.

Set in New York City in 1938, Rules of Civility tells the story of a watershed year in the life of an uncompromising twenty-five-year-old named Katey Kontent. Armed with little more than a formidable intellect, a bracing wit, and her own brand of cool nerve, Katey embarks on a journey from a Wall Street secretarial pool through the upper echelons of New York society in search of a brighter future.

Author Towles will be at Watermark Books and Café, 4701 E. Douglas, Wichita at 7 pm on Tuesday, July 10.
