Adam Johnson & Jennifer Egan
Sep 8, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| Free
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his bestselling novelThe Orphan Master’s Son, Adam Johnson is one of America’s most creative and powerful authors; critics have compared him to Kurt Vonnegut, David Mitchell, and George Saunders. Johnson’s new book, Fortune Smiles, is a major collection of stories that delve deep into love and loss, natural disasters, the influence of technology, and how the political shapes the personal. Ranging from North and South Korea to Stasi East Germany to hurricane-devastated Louisiana, these stories have already won awards for their ability to amplify voices that cannot be heard and in the process teach us about the human heart. Johnson discusses his work with fellow Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist (and Fort Greene neighbor) Jennifer Egan, author of A Visit from the Goon Squad.
