Florida Humanities Director’s Book Club: “Matrix” by Lauren Groff

December 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Florida Humanities Executive Director Nadshid Madyun for a discussion on Lauren Groff’s exhilarating book, Matrix, a New York Times bestseller, finalist for the 2021 National Book Award for Fiction, listed on former President Barack Obama’s “Favorite Books of 2021” and winner of the 2021 Florida Book Award in General Fiction. The historical drama centers on a 17-year-old rebellious orphan, Marie de France, and the trials, triumphs and transformation she experiences after being sent to England to be the new prioress of an impoverished abbey, its nuns on the brink of starvation and beset by disease. Groff, who lives in Gainesville, Florida, is the author of six books of fiction. Her work has received critical acclaim and many honors, such as The Story Prize, Southern Book Prize, Los Angeles Times Prize, the ABA Indies’ Choice Award, among many others.
