Elizabeth Strout - Olive, Again—at Sidwell Friends

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 7:00pm

New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout continues the life of her beloved Olive Kitteridge, a character who has captured the imaginations of millions of readers, with Olive, Again.

Prickly, wry, resistant to change yet ruthlessly honest and deeply empathetic, Olive Kitteridge is a compelling life force. Strout animates the ordinary with an astonishing force, and she has never done so more clearly than in these pages, where the iconic Olive struggles to understand not only herself and her own life, but the lives of those around her in the town of Crosby, Maine. Whether with a teenager coming to terms with the loss of her father, a young woman about to give birth during a hilariously inopportune moment, a nurse who confesses a secret high school crush, or a lawyer who struggles with an inheritance she does not want to accept, the unforgettable Olive will continue to startle us, to move us, and to inspire moments of transcendent grace.

Strout will be in conversation with Bethanne Patrick, 'hot books' columnist for The Washington Post Book World and reviewer for the section, as well as for NPR Books, TIME Magazine, and The LA Times.
