Why should the fiction writers have all the fun? 2021 marks the year of Louise Penny (okay, it’s always Louise Penny’s year), with publication of the 17th installment of the Inspector Gamache series and a thriller co-written with Hillary Clinton. And could there be a more perfectly unexpected stage mate for our beloved Louise than American chef Dorie Greenspan, whose delight in the kitchen is matched only by her ebullient persona? It’s the grand finale of 26@26, an unforgettable writerly feast.
The one-hour livestream event on Wordfest.com starts at 7:00 PM MT. (The pre-show begins at 6:50 PM.) The day after the show, we'll email you our unique Digital Doggie Bag, featuring links and extras sparked by the conversation.
