Sign up/in to register for this event

Settle in for an enthralling conversation about self-discovery and devotion, as two of the most highly acclaimed prose writers of our time introduce the brilliant female leads in their new books. French novelist Maylis De Kerangal brings us a young female art student in Painting Time (translated to English by Jessica Moore), an aesthetic and existential coming-of-age novel, and a most anticipated book of 2021 by The Guardian. Kathleen Winter summons Romantic Era genius Dorothy Wordsworth, in Undersong, a historical novel reimagining the lost years of esteemed yet misunderstood nature writer. Both stories underscore the struggle between serving one’s craft, pleasing others and fulfilling one’s own potential.
