Authors In Conversation Is Back with Suzanne Koven and Emily Rapp Black!

Festival Staff / April 26, 2021

Authors In Conversation is back! 

On Wednesday, May 19 at 3pm Arizona time we aired physician & author Suzanne Koven as she discussed what was once a personal letter that has now evolved into her first book, "Letter To A Young Female Physician." Koven gives readers a deeply felt reflection on her time in medicine. She will be in conversation with memoirist Emily Rapp Black, whose latest book is "Sanctuary."  

Watch a replay of the event here.

Suzanne Koven is a primary care physician and the inaugural writer-in-residence at Massachusetts General Hospital. She is also a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School. Her writing has appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Boston Globe, the Lancet, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and other publications, and has been featured on National Public Radio. 

Emily Rapp Black is the author of "Poster Child; The Still Point of the Turning World," which was a New York Times best-seller and a finalist for the PEN/USA Award; "Sanctuary;" and "Frida Kahlo and My Left Leg." A former Fulbright scholar and Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, she is Associate Professor of Creative Writing at the University of California-Riverside.
