Acclaimed authors Quan Barry (When I’m Gone, Look for Me in the East), Rebecca Makkai (I Have Some Questions for You), and Jung Yun (O Beautiful) gather to explore what happens when we return to our past—to the family, friends, and familiar places who formed us—and find ourselves changed.
Barry is a poet and playwright, author of the novel We Ride Upon Sticks, and the Lorraine Hansberry Professor of English at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Makkai is the author of National Book Awards long-listed novel and Pulitzer Prize finalist The Great Believers and The Borrower. Yun is the award-winning author of Shelter and associate professor of English at George Washington University.
Join them for a continental breakfast and conversation. Moderated by Audrey Parks of New Dominion Bookshop.
