S2G's MLF Dark Matters: Outside Female Narrators

FICTION Dark Matters: Outsider Female Narrators.  
Saturday September 12, 10:00-10:50 am

Mona Awad (Bunny, 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl), Lauren Acampora (The Paper Wasp, The Wonder Garden) and Laura Sims (Looker), consider their female characters’ tendencies toward loneliness, obsession, delusion, and, ultimately, violence. Why are these characters and “outsider” female narrators increasingly popular, and does this mark a significant shift in representations of women in literature? Moderated by Laurie Lico Albanese.
