‘We’re living through a scary historical moment when the most basic agreements about who we are as citizens, and how we’ll succeed in the world, are suddenly unravelling.’
Acclaimed American author of 15 books, Barbara Kingsolver’s new novel Unsheltered, uses the lens of the past to view where this unravelling might lead us. In 1871, Thatcher Greenwood attempts to teach Darwin’s theories to an unreceptive audience.
In 2016, Willa Knox is braced against an upended world that seems to hold no mercy for her shattered life. Barbara explores the themes of inheritance, ecology and social change also seen in The Poisonwood Bible and The Lacuna.
This event will be BSL interpreted.
This event is in partnership with the Manchester Literature Festival
