Conflict of Interest Heidi Julavits Tonight at the Big Picture
posted by November 14 at 10:06 AMon
Let’s say you get to grill Heidi Julavits, and by grill I mean ask her some questions. What would you ask? Julavits is editor of The Believer…
…and the responsible party for that long manifesto in the first issueóback in March 2003órailing against “the snarky, dumbed-down world of book reviewing.” She’s also the author of three novels (one, two, three). Tonight’s event is a book party thrown by Seattle Magazine for Julavits’s third novel, The Uses of Enchantment, about a New England teenager who may or may not have faked her own abduction. There’s also some stuff about witches. And Freud. A portion of the book sales will go to 826 Seattle. There will be a bar, there will be snacks, and there will be an interview. We will talk about The Believer. We will talk about Moby-Dick. We may talk about Jonathan Franzen vs. Ben Marcus and/or hunting in nature for psychotropic mushrooms. If there’s anything you think she should be asked, put it in the comments and I’ll ask it.
This happens at the Big Picture, 2505 First Avenue, 7 pm, $10, 21+. More details here.
