Myla Goldberg - Feast Your Eyes: A Novel

Upcoming Event
Sunday, May 5, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Goldberg made an unforgettable literary debut with Bee Season, winner of the Borders New Voices Prize and basis for the 2005 film. Now teaching fiction writing at Sarah Lawrence and NYU, Goldberg has gone on to write two more novels as well as essays and work for children. In her multi-layered new book, she profiles the fictional Lillian Preston: "America's Worst Mother, America's Bravest Mother, America's Worst Photographer, or America's Greatest Photographer, depending on who was talking." Narrated by Lillian’s daughter and framed as the notes from an exhibition catalogue, the book is a collection of memories, stories, interviews with Lillian’s friends, and excerpts from her journals, all centering on the artist’s notorious 1955 show, which included partially-nude photos of herself and her daughter.
