An Evening With Jeanette Winterson

Tuesday, November 17

Chapman (Bldg. 3, 2nd Floor)
Tickets $15

Jeanette Winterson is one of the most admired and discussed British novelists of her generation. Beginning with her first book, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, a semi-autobiographical novel about a sensitive teenage girl rebelling against conventional values, Winterson has explored the boundaries of physicality and the imagination, gender polarities, and sexual identities. In her latest novel, The Gap of Time (Crown/Archetype; $25.00), she reimagines Shakespeare’s play The Winter’s Tale. Winterson takes us from 2008 London to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia in this spellbinding story of newfound love, treacherous jealousy, revenge, regret, and ultimately, redemption.
