Brooklyn Book Festival

1:00pm DISCOVERING AMERICA. The strange, twisted enigma of America has long fascinated writers, both foreign and local, while the questions of who we are and what we’ve become seem even more pertinent today. Join Croatian-born author Dubravka Ugresic (American Fictionary), Joseph O’Neil (Good Trouble), and Hernan Diaz (In the Distance) as they wrestle with the myths, mores, violence, and vulnerability of Americans in new works that glimmer with fresh insight and subversive wit. Moderated by Eric Banks.
