Brooklyn Book Festival: Sacred Memories
October 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
When reflecting upon the past, what exactly makes something “true”? Is there power in the act of actively remembering and honoring what one may long to forget? And to what extent are we willing to sacrifice privacy for human connection? These are just a few of the questions raised in Jennifer Egan’s The Candy House and Julie Otsuka’s The Swimmers. Join these two acclaimed authors for a conversation on the sacredness of memory (or not?). Moderated by Kevin Nguyen (New Waves).
