About The Event

Surrealist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) has come to unprecedented prominence for her esoterically-charged, haunting, painting and sculpture. However, she was  also a writer of astounding power. Her novel The Hearing Trumpet reveals a hidden world of magic, mystery and mythic power inside a home for elderly women. The artist who filled her paintings with alchemical symbols, goddesses, shapeshifters and magic brings them all to vivid life in this book which reveals the power of deep listening to transform a world on the brink of apocalypse. This engaging  illustrated lecture introduces Carrington, the remarkable novel, and the magical themes in her work. Join us.
