A Woman’s Battles and Transformations: An Afternoon with Édouard Louis and Garth Greenwell

Event Date: August 14, 2022 1:00 pm

“A Woman’s Battles and Transformations” is a portrait of the author’s mother by the acclaimed writer of the international bestsellers The End of Eddy and History of Violence. Late one night, Édouard Louis got a call from his forty-five-year-old mother: “I did it. I left your father.” Suddenly, she was free. This is the searing and sympathetic story of one woman’s liberation: of mothers and sons, of history and heartbreak, of politics and power.

Presented by Books & Books, Miami Book Fair, Left Bank Books, Politics and Prose, and Prairie Lights Books.
