“By drilling deep into the woods that enabled this country to conquer the world, Proulx has laid out the whole history of American capitalism and its rapacious destruction of the land.”

THE WASHINGTON POST

Join us for a night with National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News and Brokeback Mountain, Annie Proulx.

In conversation with Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh President Jo Ellen Parker, Proulx will share the historic and moving landscapes of her new epic masterwork, Barkskins, about the taking down of the world’s forests.

“For the past decade artists have been responding to what they see in a human-damaged world of the Anthropocene,” Proulx notes, “and part of my intention with Barkskins was to make a literary comment in the same vein”.

“Annie Proulx is on the side of the angels. We need more writers like her to hammer home the message that we had better stop mistreating one another and our planet.”
