Award-winning interviewer and journalist Joe Fassler presents a panel of inspiring authors on how great writers find inspiration, in celebration of his new anthology. Light the Dark is a stunning guide to finding creative inspiration and how it can illuminate one’s life, work, and art, from acclaimed writers, including tonight’s panelists Lev Grossman (The Magicians series), Ayana Mathis (The Twelve Tribes of Hattie), and Leslie Jamison (The Empathy Exams). Collecting the best of Fassler’s much-acclaimed “By Heart” series from The Atlantic as well as brand new pieces, Light the Dark collects incredible lessons and stories of life-changing encounters with art, and the surprising and profound sources of inspiration around us. Fassler, Grossman, Mathis and Jamison examine creativity and the artistic process at this panel discussion event.
