Wednesday January 18
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join Alumni and Friends in reading Joan Didion's autobigraphical memoir "The Year of Magical Thinking." Then join us online for a book discussin with King's Professor of English Jennifer Yonkoski '96. The book is Joan Didion's account of the year following the death of her husband, writer John Gregory Dunne, and her attempts to make sense of her grief while tending to the severe illness of her adopted daughter, Quintana. Lev Grossman of Time magazine wrote of it: "An act of consummate literary bravery, a writer known for her clarity allowing us to watch her mind as it becomes clouded with grief. . . . It also skips backward in time [to] call up a shimmering portrait of her unique marriage. . . . To make her grief real, Didion shows us what she has lost."
