Nell Freudenberger - Lost and Wanted — in conversation with Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Told from the perspective of a brilliant physicist unmoored by things her science can’t explain, Freudenberg’s eagerly-awaited third novel is as intellectually compelling as it is emotionally powerful. Helen is a tenured professor of physics at MIT, revered by her peers for her work on black holes and beloved by the public for her popular science books. Then one morning her college roommate, Charlie, a talented scholar who left academia for a career as a TV script writer, calls. Charlie has just died, and her call plunges Helen into a tangle of memories and feelings she can’t entirely sort out. Freudenberger, the award-winning author of The Newlyweds and The Dissident, writes with stunning insight about relationships of all kinds, from romance to friendship to parenthood. Freudenberger will be in conversation with Dolen Perkins-Valdez, novelist and member of the Board of Directors at the PEN/Faulkner Foundation..
