Listowel Writers' Week

Lidia Yuknavitch in conversation with Evelyn O'Rourke

Oregon-based Lidia Yuknavitch re-imagines the myth of Joan of Arc in her bestselling novel The Book of Joan. A riveting tale of destruction and love transports the reader into a world of endless war, raising questions about what it means to be human, the fluidity of sex and gender and the role of art as a means for survival.

‘A dystopian, feminist tale… Remarkable… The tension in this literary mash-up builds towards an action-packed climax.’ The Irish Times.
