Peter Kuper presents Heart of Darkness

Reception to follow

Heart of Darkness has unsettled generations of readers with its haunting portrait of colonialism in Africa. Acclaimed illustrator Peter Kuper delivers a visually immersive and profound interpretation of this controversial classic, evoking the danger and suspense at the heart of this brutal story. Kuper's graphic adaptation engages with Joseph Conrad's colonial attitudes and European racism at the time, and he invites readers to grapple with these issues on their own terms. Longtime admirers of the novella will appreciate his innovative interpretations, while new readers will discover a brilliant introduction to a canonical work of twentieth-century literature. The event will feature a visual presentation of the book’s art, and a wine reception will follow.
