A perfect evening with Audrey Niffenegger

It really couldn’t have been more perfect: a brilliant author, a thrilled audience, a few ghosts and a few jokes. Audrey was gracious and fiercely intelligent. Audrey began with a short reading from Her Fearful Symmetry, which, if you haven’t yet read it, is not to be missed. Then she opened the floor to a host of smart, writerly questions. Everyone wanted to know how she managed to write such incredibly complex works of fiction, including many fans of her earlier work, The Time Traveler’s Wife. And she obliged, offering up many tidbits and hints for aspiring writers, in fact, she was inspiring.
