Eric Charles May – Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn, NY

With:

Imprisonment. In literature, prison can be a literal place and a metaphor. Whether it’s a man leaving prison with a religious transformation, a teenager sentenced to life for murdering his girlfriend, or characters held captive in their seemingly ordinary lives, these authors look at the different ways in which society can incarcerate us all. Joyce Carol Oates (Lovely, Dark, Deep), Eric Charles May (Bedrock Faith), and Kathy Page (Alphabet) talk imprisonment of the mind, body, and soul. Moderated by Paul Morris, PEN American Center.
