Sheila Heti with Jennifer Reeder: The Universe is Draftable
Date / Time
May 14, 2022
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
What do you do when you haven’t read a book that speaks to the specifics of how you’re feeling? If you’re Sheila Heti (“Motherhood” and “How Should a Person Be?”), you write one that does. Her latest novel, “Pure Colour,” fictionalizes this celebrated author’s private encounters with grief into the story of the world’s first draft, where a woman named Mira turns into a leaf. Join Heti and filmmaker Jennifer Reeder for a conversation about what it means to live a first draft life in a first draft world, making (and revising) first draft art.
