“Literature is a powerful craft, so we have an obligation to take it seriously.” – Barbara Kingsolver

Among the most relevant, engaged and original chroniclers of our times, Barbara Kingsolver is the beloved author of The Poisonwood Bible, Animal Dreams, The Bean Trees and nearly a dozen other bestsellers. Her work consistently explores human resilience in trying times, tackling themes such as love, connection, family, meaning and grief. Kingsolver’s compulsively readable books have won the National Humanities Medal, the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the Orange (now Women’s) Prize, and she was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her most recent novel, Unsheltered, tells the story of two families, in two centuries, navigating what seems to be the end of the world as they know it. Her forthcoming book of poetry, How to Fly, offers poems about transcendence, and finding breath and lightness in life and the everyday acts of living.

Speaking with Pico Series Sponsors: Martha Gabbert, Dori Pierson Carter & Chris Carter, and Laura Shelburne & Kevin O’Connor
