4B: How I Wrote This: Discussion of CONFESSIONS OF THE FOX by Jordy Rosenberg, with Andrea Lawlor
Limited Capacity seats available

We’re thrilled to welcome author Jordy Rosenberg as our Muse 2020 Fellow in Fiction, for his hilarious and fascinating novel, Confessions of the Fox. Rosenberg's book imagines the real-life, infamous thief Jack Sheppard as a transgender hero, and follows their escapades in gender-fluid, 18th century London. Praised for its "vulpine versatility" and a "comedy spliced with period erotica," it's like nothing we've ever read. Hosting the conversation is Andrea Lawlor, author of the transfixing Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl.

Join Rosenberg for an intimate discussion about his construction of Confessions of the Fox, his writing process, and more.

This event is FREE & open to the public. Pre-reading the collection is recommended, but not required.

Spitballing... Or Is It?
In this fun and fast-moving event, watch live authors use the "spitballing" techniques of screenwriters to push initial story ideas into wilder and more provocative possibilities. This year, we’re adding a twist: in exploring the “Imagination & Reality” theme, our author-panelists will brainstorm ideas for Things That Are Not What They Seem. Come ready to brainstorm, laugh, and contribute your own ideas too.

This event is open to the public.
