Novelists Paul La Farge and Jan Brandt, along with moderator Simone Schröder, jointly consider the question, How do writers of fiction make sense of a world in which familiar social structures collapse overnight, and ideas about reality are politicized in polarizing ways? They will talk about conspiracy theories, alternative facts, viral disinformation, real viruses, and other ways in which lived experience strays into the fictive — and how fiction does (and might) respond.

This event took place via Zoom. The online audience submitted written questions during a Q&A period following the discussion.
