Curtis Sittenfeld | You Think It, I’ll Say It: Stories

Tuesday, May 1

Community Parkway District

In conversation with Jennifer Weiner, author of numerous bestselling books including her recent memoir Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing and the Little Big Foot series of young adult novels.

“Popular but intellectual, accessible but mysterious” (NPR), Curtis Sittenfield’s bestselling novels—including Prep, American Wife, and Sisterland—offer blueprints of the inner architecture of such diverse female protagonists as a wayward boarding school student, a former First Lady, and an identical twin with psychic abilities. Her most recent novel, Eligible, is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice starring a Cincinnati-born magazine writer. You Think It, I’ll Say It is a debut story collection featuring a shy Ivy Leaguer, overly intimate acquaintances, a powerful but insecure lawyer, and other characters endemic of an unsure and adrift era.
