Namrata Patel – panelist

April 27 @ 1:00 pm - April 29 @ 2:00 pm EDT

THE CURIOUS SECRETS OF YESTERDAY Author Namrata Patel will be a panelist at the Newburyport Literary Festival. 

Napa, Nantucket, and North Carolina: The Power of Place

Characters and plot are necessary parts of the worldbuilding of any novel, but without the third tentpole of setting, the structure would topple. We’re bringing you three authors whose vivid settings are as much a character in their books as the characters. Join moderator Laura Szaro Kopinski, host of the popular author interview podcast A Bookish Home, as she talks with Namrata Patel, Julie Gerstenblatt, and Sara Johnson Allen, whose books take us, respectively, to Paris and Napa; Nantucket in 1846; and North Carolina.


Presenters: Namrata PatelJulie Gerstenblatt, and Sara Johnson Allen
