Edwidge Danticat – Brooklyn Book Festival, Borough Hall, Brooklyn, NY

With:

Creating Dangerously in a Dangerous World

How do different forms—fiction, reportage, memoir and essay—capture different realities, especially when the principal subject is the trauma of war and violence? Join three authors whose work explores horrific visions from a variety of angles: Edwidge Danticat (Claire of the Sea Light), Courtney Angela Brkic (The First Rule of Swimming) and Dinaw Mengestu (How to Read the Air). Moderated by Bhakti Shringarpure, editor of Warscapes.

This event will be held in the Borough Hall Courtroom (209 Joralemon Street).
