Coming from three continents, three authors currently living in New York City, the world's literary capital, discuss the state of the American novel, including the global and markets forces that are reshaping it. Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours and Speciman Days, Colum McCann, This Side of Brightness and Dancer, and Francisco Goldman, Long Night of the Chickens and The Divine Husband participates in a discussion and reading.
This discussion is part of the Brooklyn On My Mind workshop series and is presented in partnership with the Brooklyn College CUE Intiative and English Department. It is moderated by Leonard Lopate (host of The Leonard Lopate show on WNYC), and features important and diverse Brooklyn writers.
