Northshire Live: Lisa Alther in Conversation

July 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Lisa Alther will discuss her debut novel “Swan Song” with former Vermont Governor Madeleine May Kunin.

We are delighted to be joined by Lisa Alther, author of the new novel Swan Song, in conversation with legendary diplomat, poet, memoirist, and former Vermont governor Madeleine May Kunin.

A new novel, funny, wise, moving, true, as only Lisa Alther can write (“she had me laughing at 4 in the morning” –Doris Lessing), set on a cruise ship, about a woman, a doctor in charge of the ship’s clinic, recovering from the loss of her longtime female lover, a much-admired writer, and coping with the high-wire madcappery of cruise ship life as she reckons with her past and feels her way into the future.
