November 21 - Writing & Parenting
with nonfiction writer Julie Philips, author of The Baby on the Fire Escape: Creativity, Motherhood, and the Mind-Baby Problem (W.W. Norton, 2022) and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award.
What does it feel like to parent and write? Is it even possible? How did other writers, from Audre Lorde to Ursula K. Le Guin, approach parenting? What are the practicalities—and the emotional effects—of doing both?
During these two hours, nonfiction writer Julie Phillips will speak to the challenges that mother-writers face—and how they have used their experience in their work. You’re invited to send in your questions in advance of this event.
Monday, November 21, 20:00 to 22:00 (Central European Time)
