John Freeman with Rick Simonson: A Literary Family Affair
Age RecommendationTeens and Adults
Lauded literary critic John Freeman joins us to discuss his new anthology series. This second issue “takes on the family from within and without, in ways one might expect and others totally unanticipated, for an expansive reading experience,” says Kirkus Reviews. In conversation with Elliott Bay Book Company’s own Rick Simonson, Freeman will discuss the process of culling this trove of never-before-published pieces of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from literary heavyweights alongside up-and-coming writers—including Claire Messud, Angela Flournoy, Alexander Chee, Tracy K. Smith, and more—this collection presents amusing, heartbreaking, and probing stories about family life from around the globe.
