Writing the Past: A Reading & Conversation With Four Authors

6:00 PM18:00

Writing the Past: A Reading & Conversation With Four Authors

A novelist, a short story writer, a nonfiction writer, and a poet come together to talk about the ways we document and explore history in contemporary literature. With an intriguing range of perspectives, Douglas R. Dechow, Rachel Hall, Anna Leahy, and Emily Gray Tedrowe will read excerpts from their most recent books and talk about how they grapple with history in their writing. Their work draws from women's history, the Holocaust, the Iraq War, and the space age in which many of us alive today came of age. The evening will invite readers to think about the ways we can grasp the meaning of events even as they slip into the past.
