Reckoning is a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Memoir of the Season and the work of a lifetime from Tony Award-winning, bestselling author of The Vagina Monologues. V (formerly Eve Ensler) will talk with Elizabeth Lesser about this unflinching, intimate, introspective, courageous, memoir that explores ways to create an unstoppable force for change, to love and survive love, to hold people and states accountable, to reckon with demons and honor the dead, to reclaim the body, and to see oneself as connected to a greater purpose.
