Maria Semple

Tuesday, March 26, 7:30 p.m.

A hysterical dramedy about a family in crisis after the disappearance of its brilliant, misanthropic matriarch, Maria Semple’s breakout novel Where’d You Go Bernadette spent a year on the New York Times bestseller list, and will soon be a major motion picture by director Richard Linklater starring Cate Blanchett, Kristen Wiig, and Judy Greer. At this event, Semple will discuss the fiction to film process, shedding light on the upcoming film adaptation, as well as on her own television writing career. She has written for Ellen, Mad About You, Arrested Development, and other shows. Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker and The Los Angeles Times.

A Moveable Feast Book Club: Madeline Miller's "Circe"

Tuesday, April 2, 11:45 a.m.

Join fellow bibliophiles for lunch in the DMA’s Founders Room as you enjoy thoughtful conversation about Madeline Miller’s bestseller Circe. The New York Times effused that “Circe [is] a bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story that manages to be both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right.” Dr. Jaina Sanga, author, literary scholar, and Fellow of the Dallas Institute of Humanities, will facilitate the conversation and lead the group discussion.
