Jenn Shapland - "My Autobiography of Carson McCullers"
In genre-defying vignettes, author Jenn Shapland interweaves her own story with Carson McCullers’s to create a vital new portrait of one of America’s most beloved writers, and shows us how the writers we love and the stories we tell about ourselves make us who we are. Shapland will appear in conversation with OU Professor Jessica Handler, author of “The Magnetic Girl.”
