On Friday Nov 9, in this special Wisconsin Book Festival edition, Jonathan Zarov speaks with Natalie and Dean Bakapoulos. The brother and sister team will be presenting, “Well, At Least We Can Write about It Someday” as part of the festival at A Room of One’s Own bookstore this Saturday from 6:30 – 7:45. Natalie, who teaches at the University of Michigan, is the author of The Green Shore, and Dean, who teaches at Grinnell College, is the author of My American Unhappiness.
Their talk will be about the shared memories of their childhoods, the dynamics between them as authors. They explain that because both of their focuses are fiction, even though they would be drawing from the same stories and experiences, the way it would be expressed in their stories would take on very different forms. They will each read a short portion of their respective books, and will then move into a conversation session. Dean will also read from new material that has not been released as yet.
