Author Talks/Guest Speakers
Author Talk with Adrienne Brodeur
Wednesday, October 4 (6 PM) - At the Adams Center
Brodeur’s novel is a riveting book about Cape Cod, complicated families, long-buried secrets set in the summer of 2016. The book has been highlighted in the New York Times Book Review, NPR, and the Washington Post. During this past August, “Little Monsters,” was the Boston Globe Book Club pick of the month.
In 2019, Brodeur’s memoir “Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me,” was a national bestseller as it was named a Best Book of the Year by over 20 different websites or publications including Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, People, Town and Country, and BookPage.
Brodeur has spent the last two decades in the literary world with her career beginning with the founding of the fiction magazine, Zoetrope: All-Story, with filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola as she was its editor-in-chief from 1996-2002. In 2005, she became a literary fiction and memoir editor at Harcourt (later, HMH Books).
She left publishing in 2013 to become Creative Director – and later Executive Director – of Aspen Words, a literary arts nonprofit and program of the Aspen Institute. You can learn more about Brodeur here.
Copies of her book will be on sale for purchase following the author talk.
