Barbara Kingsolver - Flight Behavior --- at Washington National Cathedral
Washington National Cathedral, in partnership with Politics & Prose, announces an evening with one of America’s most perceptive novelists, Barbara Kingsolver. The evening will be her first public presentation following the publication of her fourteenth novel, Flight Behavior (Harper, $28.99). Set in rural Appalachia, Kingsolver’s novel centers on a mysterious fire. What different characters make of this silently burning valley says as much about the individual farmers, biologists, and curiosity-seekers as it does about the state of the planet. For Dellarobia, a young woman chafing at her constrained circumstances, this lake of fire is at once a warning and an opportunity.
Author, environmental activist and human-rights advocate Barbara Kingsolver has held many jobs, from archaeologist to x-ray technician, but she has always been a storyteller. “I used to beg my mother to let me tell her a bedtime story,” she says. Her works include Prodigal Summer, Poisonwood Bible, and Small Wonder.
Tickets are $15; $10 for students and P&P members.
