BSL Interpreters – Paul Michaels and Sarah Meeks
Barbara Kingsolver discusses her much-anticipated new novel Unsheltered and beyond in an in conversation with journalist and broadcaster Samira Ahmed.
A keen observer of politics and contemporary culture, Kingsolver tackles the uncertainty of the present with her latest novel, Unsheltered.
The book follows the modern-day story of Willa Knox, a middle-aged woman racked by career and family crises, with nothing to show for her life’s work and dedication except unpaid bills and a dilapidated house in Vineland, New Jersey.
But when Willa delves into the history of her home and her community, she discovers a kindred spirit from the 1880s: Thatcher Greenwood, science teacher and fervent advocate of the work of Charles Darwin, who encounters resistance in the small town of Vineland as it becomes clear that influential locals have no desire for a new world order
