Isabel Allende, Part Two
This episode is Part Two of our double-feature with Chilean writer Isabel Allende, who joined us for the second time for Seattle Arts & Lectures’ 2017/18 Season. On November 28, SAL had the pleasure of welcoming Allende back to our Literary Arts Series after her last visit thirty years ago, which we shared in our previous episode.
SAL Executive Director Ruth Dickey was in conversation with Allende that night, who shared with us how she came to write her newest book, In the Midst of Winter, as well as her thoughts on love, loss, and healing. From the transformative potential of women in power, to the healing work of truth-telling, to advice for eternal youth, her warm talk reveals Allende to be not only a candid comic genius and a passionate storyteller, but ultimately, an ambassador of joy.
