Living, Thinking, Looking - An Evening With Siri Hustvedt

Join us for a special evening reading by the prize-winning American author, Siri Husvtedt.

A writer of cultural and critical acclaim, Siri Hustvedt has written six novels, including The Blindfold, The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, What I Loved, The Sorrows of an American, The Summer Without Men, and, most recently, The Blazing World, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize 2014.

She is also the writer of a considerable body of non-fiction, including essays, academic journal articles, lectures and the autobiographical work The Shaking Woman: A History of My Nerves.

We are thrilled that Siri has agreed to to discuss her writing and take questions from the audience. The evening will be chaired by Dr Johanna Hartmann of the University of Augsburg, and hosted by Birkbeck, University of London, in partnership with the Bloomsbury Festival.

(This unique event will close the first academic conference to focus on Siri Hustvedt’s writing, hosted by Birkbeck and titled Living, Thinking, Looking. For more information about the conference, visit, or email

Please note that the venue for this event has changed from that advertised in the brochure and is now at Woburn House Conference Centre.
