Animal/Human Farm: Novelists Agustina Bazterrica and Deb Olin Unferth in Conversation

5:30 pm - 6:15 pm
Saturday, November 14, 2020
In these boundary-pushing new novels from Deb Olin Unferth (Barn 8) and Agustina Bazterrica (Tender Is the Flesh), a million chickens are the object of a madcap heist in the former, and a virus infects all animal meat and humans find themselves on the menu instead in the latter. Join Unferth and Bazterrica as they discuss the power of allegory, the not-so-clear line between human and animal, and other lessons that lurk behind the barn doors.
