Laughter Amid the Ruins

The absurd vacuity of the internet. The hilarious mishaps of queer relationships. The ridiculous lives of New York’s rich and powerful. Humor thrives despite the odds in Xochitl Gonzalez’s NYT bestselling Olga Dies Dreaming, Jordan Castro’s debut The Novelist, and Lydia Conklin’s prize-winning collection Rainbow Rainbow. Join these authors in finding comedy amid tragedy. Moderated by Ken Chen, Associate Director of Creative Writing at Barnard College.
