Readers of our Southern Gothic anthology may remember Rose Yndigoyen from her contribution “Long Gone Girls,” about which Amy Susan Willson said:
“captures the mood of a young woman who yearns for human connection so strongly that she invents an occupation for herself at a local museum while her lover attends the university during the day. And what museum would this be without a ghost? A Southern lady ghost from antebellum days past? Yndigonyen’s nimble, deft writing allows the story to resonate fully long after reading.” – Southern Literary Review
Rose will moderate a special NLSP and NYPL event Behind the Yellow Wallpaper: Women and Madness in Literature, a panel discussion centered around Gilman’s story, “The Yellow Wallpaper,” its influence on the work in Behind the Yellow Wallpaper, as well as other works on the theme. The panel will consist of select Behind the Yellow Wallpaper authors and the artist for the anthology, Loreal Prystaj.
