2:30 – 3:45 PM—Literary Discussion
READER’S DELIGHT: TALKING ABOUT BOOKS ABOUT BOOKS
For booklovers, there’s no such thing as too many books, and we delight in the stories behind our favorites. This panel of bibliophiles has great stories to tell: Fresh Air’s Maureen Corrigan, author of Leave Me Alone, I’m Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books, tells the story behind one of America’s favorite books in So We Beat On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures; Anne Gisleson, author of The Futilitarians: Our Year of Thinking, Drinking, Grieving, and Reading, relates her experience in an existential crisis reading group; Anne Boyd Rioux chronicles 150 years of a beloved classic in Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy: The Story of Little Women and Why It Still Matters; and Sarah Weinman gives us the origin story of Nabokov’s classic in The Real Lolita: the Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel That Scandalized the World. Moderated by The Reading Life’s Susan Larson. Sponsored by Backspace Bar & Kitchen.
