Audrey Niffenegger- Imaginary Friends: Building Relationships Between Fictional Characters

  • January 27, 2022
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Winnetka Community House 760 Lincoln Ave., Winnetka, IL 60093


This is a hybrid session. Registration will be enabled at a later date.

Like real people, fictional people usually do not exist in isolation. Audrey Niffenegger will discuss how to create the interdependent characters—family, friends, lovers, enemies—whose affections, rivalries, losses, and loyalties shape stories. There will be in-class writing exercises.

Audrey Niffenegger is a writer and visual artist who lives in Chicago and London. Her novels The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry were international bestersellers. She has also published graphic novels, including The Night Bookmobile and Raven Girl. The Time Traveler’s Wife is being adapted into an HBO TV series, and Ms. Niffenegger is working on a sequel, The Other Husband. She recently founded a new literary and book arts center, Artists Book House, in the Harley Clarke mansion in Evanston, Illinois.
