ESSAY PANEL FEATURING KIRSTY GUNN, MY KATHERINE MANSFIELD PROJECT
Thursday, November 17, 2016, 7 PM - 8 PM
31-29 31st Street
Astoria, NY 11106
Join us and essayist Kirsty Gunn for a panel discussion on essay writing, celebrating the US launch of her essay My Katherine Mansfield Project from Notting Hill Editions.
The panel will feature essayists Kirsty Gunn, Daniel Mendelsohn, and Phillip Lopate, with Michele Filgate to moderate. We're excited to host this event in partnership with New York Review Books, to honor the release of Kirsty Gunn's My Katherine Mansfield Project, as well as to celebrate the official launch of Notting Hill Editions in the United States.
In 2009, Kirsty Gunn returned to spend the winter in her hometown of Wellington, New Zealand, also the place where Katherine Mansfield grew up. In this exquisitely written “notebook,” which blends memoir, biography, and essay, Gunn records that winter-long experience and the unparalleled insight it allowed her into Mansfield’s fiction. Gunnexplores the idea of home and belonging—and of the profound influence of Mansfield’s work on her own creative journey. She asks whether it is even possible to “come home”—and who are we when we get there?
We hope you'll join us to celebrate the release of this wonderful essay in the U.S.
