Achy Obejas — Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn, NY

With:

Personal Moral Culpability in Global Crises: Questions of what we can do and whether it is enough are constant in our country’s current state. Yet, we are not alone in searching for direction in the midst of a crisis, as Lidia Yuknavitch (The Book of Joan), Jonathan Safran Foer (Here I Am), and Achy Obejas (The Tower of the Antilles) show through their characters’ attempts to do the same as rebel fighters in a futuristic police-state, Jewish-Americans coping with the conflict in the Middle East, and Cubans entwined with the islands they inhabit. Moderated by Karan Mahajan. The event will take place at Borough Hall Court Room, 209 Joralemon Street.
