Barbara Kingsolver - Unsheltered — in conversation with Diane Rehm at Sidwell Friends Meeting House

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 7:00pm

Since she published The Poisonwood Bible, Barbara Kingsolver has been not only a bestselling novelist but a strong moral voice for our country. Her novels have won the National Humanities Medal, the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, and the Orange (now Women’s) Prize, and consistently explore human resilience in trying times. In Unsheltered, she gives us two heroes a century apart: Willa Knox in the present, struggling to keep her family above water, and Thatcher Greenwood in the 1880s, a science teacher whose community forbids him to share Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. As Willa unearths Thatcher’s story, they learn together to find comfort in family, and in their shared hope in the future. Barbara will be in conversation with Diane Rehm, current host of the On My Mind podcast and former host of WAMU and NPR’s The Diane Rehm Show.
