Sheila Heti in Conversation with Mia Levitin

Jewish Literary Foundation presents Book Week 24

Speaker Sheila Heti
Chair Mia Levitin

Motherhood and Pure Colour novelist Sheila Heti joins literary critic Mia Levitin online from Toronto with one of 2024’s most-anticipated books, the passionate, reflective, joyful and despairing Alphabetical Diaries.


A thrilling non-fiction confessional from the multi-award winning, Motherhood and Pure Colour novelist, playwright, short story writer and children’s author Sheila Heti.

She kept a record of her thoughts over a ten-year period, then arranged the sentences from A to Z. Passionate and reflective, joyful and despairing, her Alphabetical Diaries is one of 2024’s most-anticipated books. She joins us online from Toronto, in conversation with literacy critic and The Future of Seduction author Mia Levitin.
