No style of storytelling is outside the abilities of Jasper Fforde, award-winning creator of tales for page and screen. He will discuss his latest novel, The Constant Rabbit—a fable-like satire of racial tensions in the British Isles and the world, truly apt for our times—from his home in Wales with Minnesota’s Stephanie Curtis. This event will be ASL interpreted, thanks to support from the University of Minnesota Libraries; for more information about this and other ASL interpreted events, see HERE.
Replay of this event is available throughout 2020!
