Maylis de Kerangal and Monique Truong

Nov 5, 2019

Bestselling authors Maylis de Kerangal (The Heart) and Monique Truong (The Book of Salt) read from their new books and answer questions from the audience. De Kerangal’s new novel is The Cook, a story of artistry and growth, and Truong’s The Sweetest Fruits reimagines the life of culture writer Lafcadio Hearn (frequently known as Koizumi Yakumo) through the eyes of the women that knew him best. Introduced by Laurence Marie and Anita Lo.
