Lidia Yuknavitch presents The Book of Joan
In conversation with Amber Tamblyn
From the visionary mind of Lidia Yuknavitch – whose work has been called intensely corporal, potently feminist, fierce in vision, and a trailblazing literary voice – comes the hotly anticipated The Book of Joan, a masterful work of speculative fiction that reimagines Joan of Arc as a heroine in the not-too-distant future. World wars have transformed the earth into a radioactive battleground, and Joan forges a resistance to dismantle the iron rule of a corporate police state. The Book of Joan is a riveting tale of destruction, survival, sex, and gender, and named one of the most anticipated books of 2017 by Elle Magazine, Buzzfeed, Nylon, and The Millions, among others. Yuknavitch is joined in conversation by Amber Tamblyn, bestselling and award-winning author, actress, and director, who portrayed a modern-day Joan of Arc in the television drama Joan of Arcadia.
