The Red Word: Sarah Henstra in conversation with Stephanie Boland
Plunge into the fraught gender dynamics and polarizing politics of US campus culture with award-winning Canadian author Sarah Henstra, as she discusses her thrilling new novel The Red Word with Prospect Magazine’s Stephanie Boland.
Henstra will introduce her novel, whose nail-biting suspense narrative and searing critique of frat culture has earned it the prestigious Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction in Canada. In particular, she will explore the rampant internalisation of rape culture within fraternities and sororities, as well as the isolating potential of these idiosyncratic environments—where fiery opinions, competitive intellectualism and stubborn complacency bolster conflict and create divides.
The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
