Join Perrot in welcoming celebrated author Rachel Cohen for a virtual discussion of her book, Austen Years: A Memoir in Five Novels. Cohen is a Professor of Practice in the Arts in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Chicago. Her essays on artists and writers have appeared in publications including The New Yorker, The Guardian, The London Review of Books, Art in America, Apollo Magazine, and Best American Essays. In Austen Years, Cohen hopes to provide “a nice reflective space for people going through unprecedented anxiety and real losses. I hope it’s a quiet space to think. That’s a lot of what I found in Austen.” Named one of The Globe and Mail‘s Best Books of 2020, The New York Times Book Review calls Austen Years “a thoroughly authentic, smart, and consoling account of one writer’s commitment to another.”
