Award-winning novelist, short-story writer, poet and screenwriter Susan Minot joins Halli at her table Wednesday, September 16, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
Susan Minot’s first novel MONKEYS was published in a dozen countries and won the Prix Femina Etranger in France. Her novel, EVENING, was a worldwide bestseller and became a major motion picture. She teaches at New York University and Stony Brook.
Set against the haunting canvas of war-torn Africa, in her latest book, THIRTY GIRLS – her first work of fiction in ten years – Minot interweaves the stories of two young women, a precocious Ugandan teenager abducted by Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army and Jane an idealistic, emotionally wounded American writer, each fighting for salvation in the face of ruinous brutality and loss.
Emotional nuance, formal daring, stunning evocations of Africa’s splendor and its struggles and more when bestselling author Susan Minot visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, September 16, 3 pm ET. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
