The Art of Memoir
The memoir has rarely been as popular as it is today, perhaps because it gives visibility to experiences that have so often been shut out of the literary space. For this panel, three memoirists with recent or upcoming memoirs discuss how they turned their own lives into art, and why our confessional culture shows no sign of slowing down. Featured writers: Joyce Maynard, Maud Newton, Hafizah Augustus Geter, Diana Goetsh. Moderated by Ilya Marritz, co-host and producer of Will Be Wild.
