Sena Jeter Naslund will discuss her new book on Thursday, October 10 at 6:00 p.m. at the CEC Parish Hall next door to the Main Library.
In her latest novel, The Fountain Of St. James Court; Or, Portrait Of The artist As An Old Woman, Naslund creates a tale of two worlds: one set in contemporary America and the other rooted in the turbulence of eighteenth-century France. Naslund brings readers two fully realized women of different eras, both of whom struggle to forgive themselves when they fail to balance motherhood, matrimony, and the work that sustains their souls. This novel-within-a-novel transports the reader from an engaging, modern-day Louisville to the historic streets, palaces, countrysides, and homes of France, Italy, and Russia.
Naslund is Program Director of the brief-residency Master of Fine Arts in Writing at Spalding University and Distinguished Teaching Professor and Writer in Residence at the University of Louisville. A former Kentucky Poet Laureate, Naslund is also the recipient of the Harper Lee Award and the Southeastern Library Association Fiction Award. She is editor and cofounder of The Louisville Review and the Fleur-de-Lis Press.
