Saturday, March 26, 4 – 5:15 PM—Literary Discussion

The choice to become an exile is often a difficult one. What about the choice to write about exile and the life that was left behind? In The Fortunes, Peter Ho Davies retells American history through the eyes of Chinese-Americans. In The Apartment on Calle Uruguay, Zachary Lazar creates an expat romance between a blocked painter and a charismatic journalist. And in The Perfume Thief, Timothy Schaffert gives us Clementine, a memorable queer American expat in wartime France. Moderated by author Katy Simpson Smith
