Ann Hood is the author, most recently, of The Knitting Circle and Comfort: A Journey Through Grief. Both new books deal with the loss of her 5-year old daughter, one through fiction and one through memoir. In this talk, she compares the two approaches and recalls episodes—both tragic and very, very funny—from her life. Hood is the author of seven other novels and a collection of short stories.
This talk by Ann Hood took place at the Maine Festival of the Book, sponsored by Maine Reads, on April 4, 2009.
