Named one of the most important writers of the 20th Century by Writers Digest, Barbara Kingsolver sits solidly in the firmament of great fiction writers working today.
She won the National Humanities Medal in 2000 (the same year as Toni Morrison) and the Orange Prize in 2010. Translators have brought her work to print in more than two dozen languages. Not to be forgotten, her iconic novel, The Poisonwood Bible, was a finalist for that year’s Pulitzer Prize. A long list of accolades, from the James Beard Award to the high honor of being an Oprah Book Club pick, follow after and support the simple fact that Kingsolver is a Titan of American fiction
She isn’t done yet. With her highly-anticipated new novel, Unsheltered, Kingsolver returns to the form she knows best, telling the story of two families caught in a quest to uphold the truth while the world around them quakes beneath the shifting forces of cultural-upheaval.
Get your seats today for an evening with a literary legend as she discusses an all-too-timely story of surviving in America and the resiliency of the human spirit.
