About the Event

In The Vaster Wilds, a young servant brought to Jamestown decides to run from the desolation. As she navigates the forest, her journey becomes a study of environmental stewardship and climate change; feminism; and religion and mortality. Three-time National Book Award finalist and one of America’s most evocative writers Lauren Groff will discuss her newest work.
