WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Rinne Groff's new play Compulsion, inspired by Meyer Levin's fight to tell Anne Frank's story, raises challenging questions about how we remember the past and make sense of the present. This evening, hosted by Michael Stuhlbarg (HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man), will begin with celebrated author Francine Prose (Blue Angel, Reading Like a Writer) as she talks about the life, writing, and afterlife of Anne Frank - the subject of her most recent book. Then three contemporaries on the rise -- writers in the third generation since the Holocaust - will discuss how fact and fiction interact in Holocaust literature, who "owns" the stories, and more: novelist and short story writer Nathan Englander (For the Relief of Unbearable Urges), literary critic Ruth Franklin (A Thousand Darknesses: Lies and Truth in Holocaust Fiction), and playwright Rinne Groff (Compulsion). The conversation will be moderated by Marc Tracy of Tablet magazine.
