Award-winning writer Caoilinn Hughes (The Wild Laughter) reads from her work, including an excerpt from her forthcoming novel, The Alternatives (Riverhead, April 2024). An unforgettable family portrait, The Alternatives follows four Irish sisters who were plunged prematurely into adulthood when their parents died in tragic circumstances. Now in their thirties and living disparate lives, three are brought unexpectedly together in search of one sister who doesn’t want to be found. Introduced by Visiting Leonard L. Milberg ’52 Professor in Irish Letters Fintan O’Toole.
