Pataki’s debut historical novel, The Traitor’s Wife, was a New York Times bestseller. Her latest book, Sisi: Empress on Her Own, follows Empress Elisabeth (“Sisi”) of mid-19th century Austria-Hungary.

Copeland will screen her most recent short film, Evergreen, which follows Sam, a young girl who is reluctant to throw away her family’s Christmas tree and with help from the neighborhood turns her backyard into a city of tree forts.
