Conversations at the Newberry

Two speakers. No moderator. One free-ranging conversation on a topic steeped in history and yet palpably of-the-moment. “Conversations at the Newberry” is intended to be the out-loud, public equivalent of what happens here every day when readers encounter books and manuscripts. It brings to the Newberry pairs of authors who are deeply interested in and knowledgeable about a humanities-related topic that deserves attention today and into the future.
