Karl Ove Knausgaard - Autumn — at St. Paul's

Upcoming Event
Friday, September 15, 2017 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Knausgaard’s My Struggle novels have captivated readers across the world. Zadie Smith has raved about them, and Norwegian offices have had to declare My Struggle-free days in order to keep workers on track. With Autumn, Knausgaard launches a new cycle of books, each named for a season. This first takes the form of a series of letters to his unborn daughter, describing the world she’s about to inhabit. He uses his trademark precision to draw our attention to the beauty of nature and routine, turning a welcome to his child into a substantive set of meditations for us all.

Knausgaard will be in conversation with Sandra Beasley, author of Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl: Tales from an Allergic Life, a memoir that doubles as a cultural history of food allergy, as well as three poetry collections, most recently Count the Waves (W.W. Norton, 2015). 

Tickets will be available at the door.


All books and tickets will be available at will call at 6:30 p.m. the evening of the event.
Politics & Prose will not have books or tickets available for pick up prior to the evening of the event.
