I Think We Are Alone Now 

An Iranian journalist heads to the front lines of war in Iraq and Syria. A girl and her father are the last two people on Earth. And in a town ravaged by environmental disaster, a cult leader promises to bring rain. Where can these characters find humanity in such dystopian worlds? Join novelist Salar Abdoh (Out of Mesopotamia), critically acclaimed debut author Chelsea Bieker (Godshot), and National Book Award finalist Andrew Krivak (The Bear) as they discuss art, love, and other methods of surviving the apocalypse. Moderated by Jonny Diamond, editor-in-chief of Literary Hub.
