When Newbery Medal winner Kate DiCamillo (The Tale of Despereaux) was 26 years old and dreaming of becoming a writer, she picked up Judith Thurman's book Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller and read it for the first time. It was a transformative experience. We invited Kate and Judith to come together in our virtual space for a conversation about this extraordinary work that won the 1983 National Book Award for Nonfiction and served as the basis for the Oscar-winning film Out of Africa.
Please note: This not a children's event.
Purchase Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller and more of Kate DiCamillo and Judith Thurman's books from our friends at Cafe con Libros here.
|This event was broadcast live on November 24. Ticket holders can watch a recording of the event on the Watch Here section of the Symphony Space website. The recording will be made available within 48 hours of the initial broadcast and it can be viewed until December 8.|
