Curtis Sittenfeld to Talk About RODHAM via St. Louis County Library Site (5/27)
Curtis Sittenfeld, most recently author of RODHAM (Random House), in conversation with nationally syndicated newspaper columnist Aisha Sultan, at a virtual event hosted by the St. Louis County Library, with books sales by Left Bank Books, via slcl.org, on Wednesday, May 27 at 8:00pm (ET).
Brilliantly weaving a riveting fictional tale into actual historical events, Curtis Sittenfeld’s new novel imagines a deeply compelling what-might-have-been: What if Hillary Rodham hadn’t married Bill Clinton? Exploring the loneliness, moral ambivalence, and iron determination that characterize the quest for political power, as well as both the exhilaration and painful compromises demanded of female ambition in a world still run mostly by men, RODHAM is a singular and unforgettable novel.
Sittenfeld is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Prep, The Man of My Dreams, American Wife, Sisterland, and Eligible, and the story collection You Think It, I’ll Say It, which have been translated into thirty languages. Her short stories have appeared in The New Yorker, The Washington Post Magazine, Esquire, and The Best American Short Stories, of which she was the 2020 guest editor. Her nonfiction has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Time, and Vanity Fair, and on public radio’s This American Life.
