Cara Hoffman & Lauren Wolfe

Wednesday, April 16, 7:30 PM
Cara Hoffman presents Be Safe, I Love You
In conversation with journalist Lauren Wolfe

Cara Hoffman’s acclaimed work So Much Pretty addressed the awful pervasiveness of sexual violence against women – and the pervasive silence about it – in an eloquent and suspenseful novel, which she discussed at Greenlight. With her new novel Be Safe, I Love You, Hoffman looks at the effects of war on women – as soldiers and caregivers, both at home and on the front lines – in a novel of a soldier returned home from Iraq whose efforts to care for her younger brother reveal mysterious psychological rifts. Cara talks about women and war with journalist Lauren Wolfe, an award-winning journalist for publications including The Guardian and The Atlantic, who also serves on the advisory committee of the International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict.
