Adrienne Brodeur, author of Wild Game
Come hear author (and part-time Cape resident!) Adrienne Brodeur discuss her new memoir, Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me on Wednesday evening, November 13th, from 7-8:15 pm! She will read from her book and take questions from the audience. The book will be available to buy after the talk from Eight Cousins Books.
Wild Game is the tale of a daughter living in the thrall of her magnetic, complicated mother and the chilling consequences of her complicity. Her mother calls upon her to help orchestrate her affair, and this will have a profound effect on Adrienne. The film rights have already been bought, with Kelly Fremon Craig, the director of Edge of Seventeen, attached to adapt and direct.
Adrienne Brodeur has spent the past two decades of her professional life in the literary world—discovering voices, cultivating talent, and working to amplify underrepresented writers.
Her publishing career began with founding the fiction magazine, Zoetrope: All-Story, with filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, where she served as editor in chief from 1996-2002. In 2005, she became an editor at Harcourt (later, HMH Books), where she acquired and edited literary fiction and memoir. Adrienne left publishing in 2013 to become Creative Director — and later Executive Director — of Aspen Words, a literary arts nonprofit and program of the Aspen Institute.
Adrienne splits her time between Cambridge and Orleans, where she lives with her husband and children.
