Siri Hustvedt: The Summer Without Men

Alongside Oriel Myrddin Gallery’s exhibition A Darker Thread // Edefyn Tywyllach  we will be reading Siri Hustvedt’s The Summer Without Men, chosen for us by the exhibition curator, Laura Thomas. A tale that starts with a faltering 30 year marriage and includes a cast of characters including Abigail who embroiders and appliques craft works with subversive undertones…

‘A rich and intelligent meditation on female identity, written in beguiling lyrical prose…heady and intoxicating.’ Lucy Scholes, Sunday Times

‘It’s an astoundingly joyful read…a book that shines with intellectual curiosity and emotional integrity…every page reminds us that, as Mia’s doctor tells her, “tolerating cracks is part of being alive.’ Justine Jordon, The Guardian

Join us for a friendly discussion led by Kirsten Hinks Knight.

Free entry, tea and cake provided.
