Resonances: Contemporary Writers on the Classics

Literature lives and grows out of literature, as writers develop their own voices by learning from, or reacting against, those who went before them. For the third year in a row, Baruch’s Great Works Program asks each of the participants in this event to select a classic work from those being studied in the program and discuss its resonance within his or her own life and work.

When: Thursday, April 29
Where: Baruch College Vertical Campus, CUNY, Multi-Purpose Room (ground floor, room 1-107), 55 Lexington Avenue at 25th Street, New York City
What time: 2:30–4:30 p.m.

With Aleksandar Hemon, Major Jackson, Yiyun Li, Marcel Möring, and Martin Solares; moderated by Esther Allen
