Leonora Carrington. Artist. Painter. Novelist. Trickster witch. We invited acclaimed writers Alyssa Harad, Amber Sparks, Taisia Kitaiskaia, and Porochista Khakpour for a virtual roundtable discussion of the life and legacy of one of the twentieth century’s most elusive creators. They explore the complexities of the many spheres Carrington inhabited and give us a taste of the world she wrought in the newly re-issued The Hearing Trumpet.
