Award-winning author Laird Hunt will join critically-acclaimed writer and editor Linda Spalding in conversation, to present Hunt’s latest novel, Zorrie. The pair will explore our changing and challenging relationships to history, its facts and its fictions, and ask to whom and how do we tell these stories in our contemporary times? Spanning an entire lifetime, Hunt’s novel follows Zorrie Underwood as life convulses and transforms around her. After a childhood shadowed by immense tragedy and perilous realities, Zorrie drifts west, surviving on odd jobs and sleeping in barns searching for a place in the world.
