Where Do the Words Come From: An Evening with Sheila Heti
A Room of One's Own is thrilled to partner with the Society for Novel Studies Conference to bring books for the keynote address with author Sheila Heti.
The Society for Novel Studies exists to further the study of the novel as a genre and to examine the role of fiction in engaging, formulating, and shaping the world. This coming May 2023, SNS invites scholars at all levels to join in a conversation on the theme of “The Novel and the Archive.”
Sheila Heti is the author of ten books of fiction and non-fiction. Her most recent novel is Pure Colour (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2022), which The Atlantic called “unabashedly metaphysical.” She has spoken at the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Modern, the New Yorker Festival, the 92nd Street Y, the Hammer Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and at universities across North America, and at festivals internationally. She is the founder of the Trampoline Hall lecture series, appeared in Margaux Williamson’s film Teenager Hamlet, and sporadically posts new episodes to her podcast, Podcast with Raisins. She lives in Toronto.
