What is the potential of the historical novel today? Join us for a reading of new work by the prize-winning novelist Peter Carey, followed by a conversation with Aoibheann Sweeney of the Center for the Humanities, about the way contemporary literature reflects on past political and cultural events. This series is sponsored by The Association of Literary Scholars, Critics, and Writers, an organization which encourages the reading and writing of literature, criticism, and scholarship, as well as wide-ranging discussions among those committed to the reading and study of literary works.
