Generational Ties: Lisa Moore & Donatella Di Pietrantonio
September 24 at 6:30pm
What makes a family? How does it shape us across generations? Join internationally acclaimed Italian author Donatella Di Pietrantonio and prize-winning Canadian author Lisa Moore to explore the many complex sacrifices, secrets and love stories that make up families. In her latest novel A Sister’s Story (translated by Ann Goldstein, praised for her Elena Ferrante translations), di Pietrantonio revisits the characters in her bestselling novel A Girl Returned to chronicle a moving story focused on the ambivalent, ambiguous, wavering but steadfast relationship between sisters. Moore’s This is How We Love unfolds a young man’s story after he is violently attacked to paints a shimmering portrait of mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers; of children cared for, neglected, lost and re-found.
Moderated by Catherine Bush.
