"The Hours" by Michael Cunningham

Wednesday, July 17, 2024, 6 p.m.

Going back and forth between three different times and three different protagonists, this Pulitzer Prize winning novel follows the stories of three women affected by Virginia Woolf’s book Mrs. Dalloway. Intertwined are the distant lives and memories of Woolf herself in London as she writes the work, a disillusioned housewife in 1940s Los Angeles, and a 90s New York independent woman helping a dying friend. Themes of sexuality and mental illness overlap and evolve through the three stories.

A creative writing professor at Yale, Cunningham still publishes novels and lives in Manhattan.
