      Postponed — On Reading Tolstoy: Carmen Boullousa and Siri Hustvedt

      This event has been postponed. We will update this page and contact ticket holders when new information is available. If you have any questions in the meantime, please email us at info@centerforfiction.org.

      Carmen Boullosa’s The Book of Anna imagines the life of Anna Karenina’s son as he meets Tolstoy in his dreams and finds reminders of his mother everywhere, including the opium-infused manuscripts Anna wrote just before her death, which open a trapdoor to a wild feminist fairy tale. Join the author and writer Siri Hustvedt for a conversation about the ways the books we love grow in our imaginations.

      This event is part of our On Reading series: What makes us return to stories we’ve read, sometimes again and again, and how do we make time for this life-enriching pleasure? On Reading is a passionate and motivating call to lead a well-read life.
