Fresh Voices. Strong Stances

Talk & Readings

It can often take years for authors to become acclaimed literary figures. And yet sometimes a newcomer’s first book hits the mark perfectly. One of the Observers’ Top 10 debut novelist and author of little scratch, Rebecca Watson and the multi-awarded author of A Respectable Occupation, Julia Kerninon discuss how young women authors can bring a different voice to the literary world. A conversation chaired by writer Lauren Elkin and interspersed with readings by Olivia Ross.
