The Ugly Duckling: Join three authors who tell the age old story of transformation. James McBride (The Good Lord Bird) tells the story of a young male slave who joins the abolition movement by passing as a girl. Meg Wolitzer (The Interestings) traces the unexpected changes that occur between childhood and adulthood. And Audrey Niffenegger (Raven Girl) takes transformation to a whole other level, in the form of a coming-of-age raven trapped in human form. Moderated by David L. Ulin.
Here is a link to an older but great interview at UR Chicago Magazine Online that Pawl Schwartz conducted with Audrey last year discussing, among other things, Raven Girl and Audrey’s current novel-in-progress,The Chinchilla Girl in Exile.
