PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In conversation with Sarah Hepola
Promotional Partners: The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture and the Women's Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

Award-winning landscape designer Rebecca Winn takes readers through a journey of self discovery in her book One Hundred Daffodils: Finding Beauty, Grace, and Meaning When Things Fall Apart. After the abrupt end of her 25-year marriage, Winn felt untethered spiritually, physically, and emotionally. She then embarks on a quest for meaning, identity, and purpose through gardening, a study of Jungian psychology, and a deep dive into global spiritual practices. Repeatedly compared to poet Mary Oliver, Winn transformed heartbreak into wholeness through communion with the divine in nature.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In partnership with The Black Academy of Arts & Letters
A hybrid of fiction and history, Black Bottom Saints pays tribute to Detroit's legendary African American neighborhood through an inventive pairing of biographies of historical figures with cocktail recipes. Kiese Laymon (bestselling author of Heavy) calls it "easily the most inventive and musical novel I've read in a decade." Join 20 minutes before the talk for a pre-show Happy Hour featuring Detroit-based mixologists Brian Edwards and Raven Love of Double Strained Collective, who will teach you how to make some of the cocktails featured in the book.

Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, delivers The Splendid and the Vile, a compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people "the art of being fearless." Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year, transporting readers to a time of true leadership, when-in the face of unrelenting horror-Churchill's eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together. Larson's bestselling books include The Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts.
