Share this story with your world:

Lisa Alther, most recently the author of SWAN SONG (Knopf), will be in conversation with Lee Smith at a virtual event hosted by Union Ave Books (Knoxville, TN) via Zoom on Sunday, July 12 at 2:00 pm (ET).

SWAN SONG is funny, wise, moving, and true, as only Lisa Alther can write (“she had me laughing at 4 in the morning” –Doris Lessing), set on a cruise ship, about a woman, a doctor in charge of the ship’s clinic, recovering from the loss of her longtime female lover, a much-admired writer, and coping with the high-wire madcappery of cruise ship life as she reckons with her past and feels her way into the future.

Alther was born and grew up in Tennessee. She has written eight novels, among them Kinflicks, a feminist coming-of-age chronicle. Her other books include Original Sins, Other Women, Bedrock, and a book of conversations between Alther and the painter Françoise Gilot (About Women). Alther’s books have been published in seventeen languages and have appeared on best-seller lists worldwide. She lives in Vermont and Tennessee.
