Nugent gained a following with American Nerd: the Story of My People, a blend of memoir and reportage that delved into the origins, struggles and pop culture mythologizing of nerds.  His debut novel, Good Kids, probes infidelity, romance and loyalty.   Two high school classmates witness an illicit tryst, an incident which shadows them for the next ten years.  When they rediscover one another as adults, a fervent youthful vow is put to the test.  The reading will be followed by a book-signing and reception.

Coming up later this spring: Patricia Volk, Ann Kirschner and Victor Navasky will appear in the spring 2013 edition of the @Macaulay Author Series, a new Upper West Side literary series held in the landmark 1904 building of CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College.
