WISH YOU WERE HERE: EMERGING WRITERS TAKING US TO OTHER WORLDS

One of the great challenges facing new writers is taking readers someplace new, with authority and conviction. These writers discuss how they did it: Nicholas Mainieri takes us to post-Katrina New Orleans and the world of the Mexican drug cartels in The Infinite; Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes creates a chaotic 70s-era Spain in The Sleeping World; and Matthew Griffin chronicles the long relationship of a closeted gay couple in the post-war American heartland in Hide. Katy Simpson Smith, known for The Story of Land and Sea and Free Men, novels set in colonial America, moderates this panel.
