Edward Carey and Gregory Maguire joined online last month us for a most enchanting night to celebrate’s Carey’s latest, The Swallowed Man. Cozy up and enjoy a replay of this magical engagement!
In The Swallowed Man, the ingenious storyteller Edward Carey returns to reimagine a time-honored fable: the story of an impatient father, a rebellious son, and a watery path to forgiveness for the young man known as Pinocchio.
We had the immense pleasure of hosting Carey and Wicked author Gregory Maguire early last month in what proved to be the first ever meeting of the two and—no surprise—all involved were absolutely delighted! The evening’s conversation featured talk of myths, favorite fairy tales, Carey’s many hobbies and trades, with a lively Q&A to cap it off. If you missed it, now’s your chance to revel in this one-of-a-kind online event! Catch the replay here!
