The literary biographer Hermione Lee has chronicled the lives of Virginia Woolf, Edith Wharton, Willa Cather, and Penelope Fitzgerald. Her most recent book, twice the length of her last, takes on her first living subject—the Czech-born British playwright Tom Stoppard. It’s a matchup of heavyweights, Stoppard’s stature in the theater akin to Lee’s in nonfiction. This exclusive virtual event sees the author once again taking on her subject, but in conversation, discussing the results of her exhaustive research into Stoppard’s life with the man himself. —C.J.F.
