Podcast: Authors Susanna Kaysen and Maggie Shipstead, April 2014

| No Comments
Two award-winning authors with newly released novels, Maggie Shipstead and Susanna Kaysen, spoke at Greenwich Library as part of AuthorsLive on Tuesday, April 29. Maggie Shipstead, author of the acclaimed debut novel Seating Arrangements, has a well received new novel, Astonish Me. Susanna Kaysen, best-selling author of Girl, Interrupted, also has a new novel, Cambridge, which is described as a fictional prequel to Girl, Interrupted. The two authors engaged in an intimate conversation with the audience about writing styles and methods, including their challenges. The authors also divulged their plans for the future: Kaysen says that she will plumb the depths of Cambridge itself until the end of time.  Shipstead will heroically tackle a series of bedeviling short stories that have defied her efforts at ending them.
