Author Talk with Adrienne Brodeur
Thursday, July 23 at 7 pm
At the age of fourteen, Adrienne Brodeur became her mother’s confidant in a decade-spanning secret with calamitous consequences. Her book Wild Game is a vivid and magnetic memoir and an ode to Cape Cod. Adrienne Brodeur began her career in publishing as the cofounder, with filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, of the National Magazine Award–winning Zoetrope: All-Story. She has worked as a book editor and is currently the executive director of Aspen Words. Wild Game’s film rights were bought by Chernin Entertainment with Kelly Fremon Craig, the director of Edge of Seventeen, attached to adapt and direct.
