Michaela Carter + Kate Christensen

Live via Zoom:

Michaela Carter presents Leonora in the Morning Light
In conversation with Kate Christensen

Michaela Carter, author of Further Out Than You Thought and cofounder of the independent bookstore the Peregrine Book Company, joins Greenlight (virtually!) to share her new book, Leonora in the Morning Light. This page-turning novel follows Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington and the art, drama, and romance that defined her coming-of-age during World War II. The story of Leonora’s tumultuous and passionate love affair with the older, married artist Max Ernst spans time and borders as they seek to reunite and reclaim their creative power in a world shattered by war. When their paths cross with Peggy Guggenheim, an art collector and socialite working to help artists escape to America, nothing will be the same. Based on true events and historical figures, Leonora in the Morning Light is an unforgettable story of love, art, and destiny that restores a twentieth-century heroine to her rightful place in our collective imagination. Carter is joined in conversation by Kate Christensen, award-winning author of The Great Man.
