My Autobiography of Carson McCullers | Jenn Shapland + Cyrus Grace Dunham
After discovering heartfelt love letters between Carson McCullers and writer Annemarie Schwarzenbach, memoirist Jenn Shapland embarks on an intense study into McCuller’s complicated life. By weaving her own story, Shapland “remakes the boundaries between criticism, biography, and autobiography in search of two identities.”
Shapland will discuss writing and researching My Autobiography of Carson McCullers (Tin House Books) with Cyrus Grace Dunham, author of A Year Without a Name. Jazmine Hughes, story editor at New York Times, will moderate.
