Although these authors explore the tragedy of losing family members and friends, they also highlight the triumph of finding new life in the vacuums every loss leaves behind. Join debut novelist Ilana Masad (All My Mother’s Lovers), National Book Award–winning novelist Sigrid Nunez (What Are You Going Through), and National Humanities Medal recipient Joyce Carol Oates (Night. Sleep. Death. The Stars) as they discuss life after devastation. Moderated by MJ Franklin, editor at the New York Times Book Review.
