Summer Words Panel: Literature with Impact

June 19, 2017 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm UTC-6

The $35,000 Aspen Words Literary Prize was launched this year to honor an influential work of fiction that illuminates a vital contemporary issue. How can literature forge connections and shape public conversation around critical issues, without polarizing readership? Authors Chinelo Okparanta, Ben Fountain, and Saïd Sayrafiezadeh will discuss the transformative power of literature on thought and culture. Moderated by Viking Penguin VP & Executive Editor Carole DeSanti.
