The Art of the Memoir
Great memoirs implicitly tackle the subject of identity, weaving together a cohesive self from a jumble of experiences, influences and, yes, imperfect memories. But what propels authors to write a memoir, and what compels us to read them? Join three masters of award-winning and best-selling works who dared such examination and reflection as they discuss the risks and rewards of writing a memoir. Stick around after the event for a book signing with Kiese Laymon, Dani Shapiro, and Richard Blanco. Presented in partnership with Aspen Words.
