Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Kristen Radtke for Seek You

Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Kristen Radtke for Seek You

*Offsite
Tuesday, Oct 5, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

From the acclaimed author of Imagine Wanting Only This—a timely and moving meditation on isolation and longing, both as individuals and as a society. Kristen Radtke will appear live on Crowdcast to discuss her new book, Seek You.

Join the event at: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/wbf-seek-you. Before the event begins, you will see a countdown and the event image. 

About Seek You: There is a silent epidemic in America: loneliness. Shameful to talk about and often misunderstood, loneliness is everywhere, from the most major of metropolises to the smallest of towns. In Seek You, Kristen Radtke’s wide-ranging exploration of our inner lives and public selves, Radtke digs into the ways in which we attempt to feel closer to one another, and the distance that remains. Through the lenses of gender and violence, technology and art, Radtke ushers us through a history of loneliness and longing, and shares what feels impossible to share.

 

Ranging from the invention of the laugh-track to the rise of Instagram, the bootstrap-pulling cowboy to the brutal experiments of Harry Harlow, Radtke investigates why we engage with each other, and what we risk when we turn away. With her distinctive, emotionally-charged drawings and deeply empathetic prose, Kristen Radtke masterfully shines a light on some of our most vulnerable and sublime moments, and asks how we might keep the spaces between us from splitting entirely.
