National Reading Group Month Panel and Networking Party
Oct 6, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $10
In celebration of National Reading Group Month, a panel of fantastic authors will discuss their re-imagined classic tales and how they drew modern works from familiar stories. Dinitia Smith’s The Honeymoon gives new insight into the life of George Eliot, while Elizabeth Nunez adds complexity to King Lear in Even in Paradise, and both Lyndsay Faye (Jane Steele) and Catherine Lowell (The Madwoman Upstairs) give a twist on the Brontës, but through entirely different methods.
Before and after the panel, guests will have time to enjoy refreshments and wine, network with fellow book lovers, and explore the beautiful Pen+Brush gallery. We hope you’ll join us in what is sure to be a fascinating discussion on process and imagination—and the classics that inspire us all.
