Lydia Millet presents A Children’s Bible
In conversation with Jenny Offill
Pulitzer Prize finalist Lydia Millet’s new novel A Children’s Bible – her first since the National Book Award long-listed Sweet Lamb of Heaven – follows a group of twelve eerily mature children on a forced vacation with their families at a sprawling lakeside mansion. A Children’s Bible is a prophetic, heartbreaking story of generational divide, an indelible novel of teenage alienation and adult complacency in an unraveling world – and a haunting vision of what awaits us on the far side of Revelation. Millet follows climate change denial to its natural conclusion in a narrative that is at once wryly funny and painfully sublime, taking her place at the vanguard of a new generation of writers addressing the largest and most complicate issue of our time. Jenny Offill, author of Dept. of Speculation, Last Things and Weather, joins Millet in conversation for this live online author event!
