Largehearted Boy presents Literary BFFs
Anne Korkeakivi presents Shining Sea
In conversation with Megan Mayhew Bergman
Hosted by David Gutowski
Greenlight is proud to host the Literary BFFs reading series, where writer friends interview each other about their books, lives, and friendship; the series is hosted by David Gutowski, creator of the acclaimed literary blog Largehearted Boy. At this month’s installment, Anne Korkeakivi presents Shining Sea. Korkeakivi’s writing has been compared to Virginia Woolf’s, and in her new book, she highlights just how the tangle of historical event and personal experience ultimately shape a life. As Korkeakivi makes clear in her spellbinding prose, grief lasts forever, but the capacity for joy remains alongside it. Korkeakivi talks with her friend Megan Mayhew Bergman, author of Birds of a Lesser Paradise and Almost Famous Women.
