Sheila Heti: Pure Colour

Sun 11 Sep, 10am

Critically acclaimed Canadian author Sheila Heti has tackled some of modern day’s greatest conundrums, including whether to have children (Motherhood) and how to live an authentic life (How Should a Person Be?). Hailed ‘the most timely, urgent book of 2022’ (Los Angeles Times), her newest novel, Pure Colour, considers how love and art can heal. Heti appears live via video with on-stage interviewer Sarah Krasnostein to discuss a genre-defying story that, like her previous works, refreshes our perception of the world and what a book can be.
