Shakespeare and the novel, Still Time

The question that drives Jean Hegland’s most recent novel, Still Time, is whether aging Shakespeare scholar John Wilson can find a way to reconcile with his video gamer daughter before dementia overtakes him. In her talk, Hegland will describe the inception and evolution of Still Time, and address the challenges of writing a novel that has fascinated and moved both readers who have no interest in Shakespeare as well as those who are Shakespeare enthusiasts and even experts. In addition, Hegland will discuss the pleasures of incorporating Shakespeare’s language, themes, and questions about recognition and reconciliation into her own story.
