PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Presented by PEN America, Arts & Letters Live, and Deep Vellum
In Sheila Heti’s latest book, Motherhood, the New York Times bestselling author asks what is gained and what is lost when a woman becomes a mother, treating the most consequential decision of early adulthood with the candor, originality, and humor that have won her international acclaim. Award-winning author Sigrid Nunez’s new novel The Friend is a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice and tells the story of a woman who unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, and finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. It is a moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog. The authors will read brief excerpts from their latest work and then engage in conversation, moderated by Roslyn Dawson Thompson, President and CEO of Dallas Women’s Foundation.
