Virtual Book Club: Orange World
Join a lively discussion with fellow book lovers via Zoom to discuss Orange World by Karen Russell. Attendees will be given complementary access to Karen Russell’s Ten Evenings lecture on February 22, courtesy of Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures.
Russell’s third collection beckons like a will-o’-the-wisp across the bog, with eight crisp stories that will leave longtime fans hungry for more. Since her debut more than a decade ago, Russell (Sleep Donation, 2014, etc.) has exhibited a commitment to turning recognizable worlds on their heads in prose so rich that sentences almost burst at the seams. Her third collection is no exception, and its subjects—forgotten pockets of violent American history, climate-related apocalypse, the trials of motherhood—feel fresh and urgent in her care…A momentous feat of storytelling in an already illustrious career. (starred review, Kirkus)
