Michelle Orange & Adelle Waldman

Live via Zoom:
Wednesday, June 9, 7:30 PM ET
Michelle Orange presents Pure Flame
In conversation with Adelle Waldman

Michelle Orange, celebrated critic and author of the essay collection This Is Running for Your Life, presents her new book, Pure Flame, a ferocious reckoning with feminism, family, and motherhood. Through a blend of memoir, social history, and cultural criticism, Orange pursues a chain of personal, intellectual, and collective inheritance, tracing the forces that helped transform the world and what a woman might expect from it. Told with warmth and rigor, Orange’s account of her mother’s life and their relationship is pressurized in critical and unexpected ways, resulting in an essential, revelatory meditation on becoming, selfhood, freedom, mortality, storytelling, and what it means to be a mother’s daughter now. Orange is joined in conversation by Adelle Waldman, author of The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.
