Norah Vincent
Adeline: A Novel of Virginia Woolf

A unique night of literature moderated by Honor Molloy

Wednesday, April 15 | 7:30 pm

On April 18, 1941, twenty-two days after Virginia Woolf went for a walk near her weekend house in Sussex and never returned, her body was reclaimed from the River Ouse. Norah Vincent’sAdeline: A Novel of Virginia Woolf reimagines the events that brought Woolf to the riverbank, offering us a denouement worthy of its protagonist.

The New York Times best-selling author Norah Vincent’s boldly imagined portrait of Woolf will be brought to life as award-winning actress Polly Lee (as seen recently on The Americans) performs excerpts of the newly released novel.

After the reading, Vincent will sit down for a conversation with Honor Molloy, author of Smarty Girl.

Norah Vincent is The New York Times bestselling author of Self-Made Man, as well as two other books. Formerly an op-ed columnist for the Los Angeles Times, she has also contributed regularly to Salon, The Advocate, and The Village Voice. She lives in New York City.
