Now in her 80s, British author Penelope Lively has written 23 novels and short story collections and four works of nonfiction. She won the Booker Prize for her novel Moon Tiger and the Carnegie Medal for children’s literature. In her novels and short stories, seemingly inconsequential decisions can shape an entire life. She writes with humor and insight. Her friend, poet Lawrence Sail, describes her as “shrewd and wise…and she’s keenly observant.” We will read Moon Tiger, published in 1987, and her most recent work, The Purple Swamp Hen and Other Stories, published in 2016.
