The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome Emerging Writer Fellowship alum Alanna Schubach to our stage in celebration of her debut novel, The Nobodies. Exploring themes of friendship and enmeshment, Schubach probes at the darker underbelly of the deep and abiding closeness of female connection. The Nobodies is a 21st century, A24-ified “Freaky Friday.” In the book, best friends Jess and Nina have a massive secret. Whenever they touch their foreheads together, they can switch bodies, finding solace from their own problems in each other’s worlds. After a long separation, the friends are reunited around the death of Jess’s father, and their worlds begin to mesh once more, losing themselves in the process.
Join Schubach and author Katherine Hill for this raw and honest investigation of intimacy, betrayal, and the deep and abiding closeness of female friendship.
