Booklist’s Donna Seaman in Conversation with Eve Ensler

Tonight at the Swedish American Museum, Booklist‘s own Adult Books Editor Donna Seaman will join renowned author, activist, and playwright Eve Ensler in conversation. The event, hosted by independent bookstore Women & Children First and cosponsored by Rivendell Theatre Ensemble, will also include a reading from Ensler’s best-selling latest, The Apology, a Q and A with the audience, and a book signing.

As Donna writes in her starred Booklist review, The Apology, told from the point of view of Ensler’s abusive father, is a “transfixing, appalling, revelatory, and cathartic performance,” where Ensler’s pain is transmuted “into clarion stories that engender understanding, openness, healing, and liberation.”

Like Ensler’s remarkable work, this event is not to be missed. Don’t yet have a ticket? Snag one now!
