A Virtual Evening with Jill McCorkle and Mitchell Kaplan
Event Date: September 24, 2020 7:00 pm
A discussion on a mesmerizing novel about the burden of secrets carried across generations. “Hieroglyphics” reveals the difficulty of ever really knowing the intentions and dreams and secrets of the people who raised you. In her deeply layered and masterful novel, Jill McCorkle deconstructs and reconstructs what it means to be a father or a mother, and what it means to be a child piecing together the world around us, a child learning to make sense of the hieroglyphics of history and memory. Recorded live September 24, 2020 in partnership with Miami Book Fair.
