Beyond the Page with Téa Obreht

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

07:00 PM - 08:00 PM



GBH is proud to present award-winning author Téa Obreht for April’s virtual Beyond the Page event! Obreht is the international bestselling author of The Tiger’s Wife (2011) and Inland (2020), as well as an accomplished short story writer whose work has been featured in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Harper’s Magazine, among many others.

Obreht will answer audience questions about her writing and creative processes, and give insights on the publishing industry. She will also be sharing more about her upcoming novel, The Morningside, which is set to release on March 19.

The Morningside expands on her short story published by New York Times Magazine for a COVID-19-related anthology. The novel follows 11-year-old Silvia and her mother as they flee their war-torn home and arrive in Island City, a near-future city ravaged by coastal flooding. With her past shrouded in mystery, Silvia embarks on an adventure to find out more about herself, the interesting characters in her new apartment building, and the magical, yet impoverished city around her.

At Beyond the Page, we believe in the power of knowledge, the magic of stories and the beauty of shared experiences. This event series features interactive sessions with renowned authors discussing their latest work and their writing process. Whether you're seeking profound discussions or heartfelt emotions, these events offer something truly special for everyone.
