11/13/2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

In our second event exploring literature and conflict to coincide with Veteran’s Day, five authors whose work examines the personal tolls of war from a number of perspectives will discuss depicting the “enemy” with sympathy; capturing the experiences of refugees; how current affairs affect fiction, and how one writes critically about war. With David Abrams (Brave Deeds), Helen Benedict (Sand Queen; Wolf Season), Cara Hoffman (Be Safe I Love You), Matt Gallagher (Youngblood), and Dalia Sofer (The Septembers of Shiraz).
