Internationally bestselling authors join Read for the Cure’s virtual stage to discuss their blockbuster works in true crime, literary fiction, and memoir.
Born into music royalty as the daughter of folk legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III—and sister to the highly acclaimed, genre-defying singer Rufus Wainwright—Martha Wainwright was always surrounded by legends, before she became one in her own right. In Stories I May Regret Telling You, the singer-songwriter speaks intimately of her extraordinary experiences with love, loss, motherhood, divorce, the music industry, and more.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Martha Wainwright will now appear at this event through a virtual, pre-recorded interview. Thank you for your understanding.
Pulitzer Prize–winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout strikes gold with Lucy by the Sea, a poignant, pitch-perfect novel about a divorced couple stuck together during lockdown—and the love, loss, despair, and hope that animate us even as the world seems to be falling apart. With prose rich with empathy and emotion, Strout vividly captures feelings of isolation, as well as the peace and possibilities that long, quiet days can inspire.
One of the most anticipated books of 2022—gracing the must-read lists of Vanity Fair, Bustle, The Millions, Literary Hub, the Los Angeles and Seattle Times and more—Sarah Weinman’s Scoundrel is a shocking true-crime masterpiece on the wrongful exoneration of killer Edgar Smith and the many people who fell prey to his charm. Scoundrel showcases where crime and culture intersect and where the darkest of violent impulses meet literary ambition, human ego, and hunger for fame.
Moderated by the incredible Lucy van Oldenbarneveld, former CBC Host host and broadcaster, this will be an evening exploring love, deception, isolation and the will to overcome. Join Read for the Cure for a fascinating conversation followed by an audience Q&A. Don’t miss out on this spectacular literary event!
