We carry some characters from books around with us like they’re trusted friends. We feel as close to them as we would to flesh and blood human beings we’ve known, loved, or loathed. We have strong feelings about them, we trust or distrust them, they make us laugh and cry. They’re as living and breathing as the reader. What’s the secret to making characters come to life, inhabit life-like bodies and feel life-changing emotions? What’s the magic that goes into making the description of a person in words spring to three-dimensional life? Join our award-winning guests from Europe, Szczepan Twardoch, Asle Skredderberget, and Tommy Wieringa, as well as New York Times bestseller, Elizabeth Flock, as they describe how they breathe life into their unforgettable characters. Moderated by writer, translator, and co-founder of New Vessel Press, Ross Ufberg.
Proudly co-presented by Scandinavia House.
