In Conversation: Kate DiCamillo & Judith Thurman

Thurman Mainevent 2021

Description

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 is available to view with the Symphony Space 20-21 Season Pass.
