In Conversation: Ann Packer & Elizabeth Strout

New York Times bestselling authors Ann Packer and Elizabeth Strout will discuss their new novels that center around the powerful influence of families on our lives. The Children's Crusade  (Packer) is the compassionate and nuanced story of the Blairs and their home in the yet-to-be-discovered Silicon Valley, and how family can be both a comfort and a destructive force. Strout's My Name is Lucy Barton tells the story of a reunion between a mother and daughter that uncovers long-buried tensions.

Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of her life: her impoverished childhood in Amgash, Illinois, her escape to New York and her desire to become a writer, her faltering marriage, her love for her two daughters.
 
Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable. In My Name Is Lucy Barton, one of America’s finest writers shows how a simple hospital visit illuminates the most tender relationship of all-the one between mother and daughter.
 
Elizabeth Strout is the author of Olive Kitteridge, for which she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, as well as The Burgess Boys, a New York Times bestseller, and two other novels. She has also been a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize. She lives in New York City and Portland, Maine.
 
Cressida Connelly is a journalist, reviewer and prize-winning author of three books; most recently a novel, My Former Heart.
