Digital Online Event Spoken Word

Elizabeth Strout in Conversation

Available to view Monday 1 November, 1pm – Sunday 14 November, midnight 2021
Tickets £7.50

One of America’s finest writers, Elizabeth Strout returns to the world of her much-loved character Lucy Barton. In Oh William!, Elizabeth’s superb seventh novel, Lucy is reconnected with her first husband and father of her children, William. As they undertake a road trip together, Lucy discovers long kept secrets about William’s childhood which force her to reconsider their time together and her own life. A poignant story of grief, trauma, how well we can really know someone else and how we might heal. Elizabeth won the Pulitzer Prize for Olive Kitteridge and her novels include The Burgess Boys, Amy and Isabelle, My Name is Lucy Barton, Anything is Possible and Olive, Again. Hilary Mantel describes her as ‘a superbly gifted storyteller and a craftswoman in a league of her own.’
