Bleaker House: Chasing My Novel to the End of the World

March 23, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Most people wouldn’t choose somewhere desolate and snowy for creative endeavors. But author NELL STEVENS wanted no distractions. Join her at Brookline Booksmith for a discussion of her book– the end result of her struggle to craft a debut novel. A whimsical blend of memoir and travelogue, laced with wry writing advice, Bleaker House is the story of Steven’s attempt to hunker down and write – not in some idyllic French villa, but on a frozen rock in the Falklands, with only penguins and her own paranoia for company.
