This is for VIRTUAL TICKETS to the conversation with Jennifer Egan. If you would like to join us in-person at the Sydney Goldstein Theater for this event, please visit us here.
In books like The Invisible Circus, Look at Me, and Manhattan Beach, Jennifer Egan writes with nuance on an astounding range of subjects and disciplines. That intellectual breadth also shows up in her journalism, featured in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Harper’s Magazine,and elsewhere. Her most recent novel, The Candy House, is a sort of sibling to the Pulitzer prize-winning A Visit from the Goon Squad — and yet another example of Egan’s agility as a writer. From first person plural, to third person, to a chapter written in tweets, Egan once again demonstrates why she is one of the most acclaimed fiction writers in recent years.
