What You Become in Flight: A Conversation with Ellen O'Connell Whittet (via Zoom)

In this searingly raw and graceful first book, author Ellen O'Connell Whittet explores both the joy of learning to jump and the safety of landing. Sorrow, violence, love, fear, hunger, and pain run through this memoir that critics have called "enthralling, "poignant," and "exquisite." Join the author for a conversation that opens out the personal to the universal questions of self-worth, the desire to disappear, the loss and reclamation of our own voice, and what it feels like to look at a body and see a story.
