Join author Stephanie Rabinowitz for an exciting exploration of relatively unsung American literary gems that you should be reading.
From Willa Cather’s Death Comes for the Archbishop to John Williams’s Stoner, Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, Henry James’s What Maisie Knew, and Wallace Stegner’s Angle of Repose, Rabinowitz will focus on the rare and masterful ability of these authors to create narrators with wholly original points of view.
The revolutionary techniques of these writers allowed them to achieve the impossible: offering the reader that nearly out-of-body experience of empathizing with fictional characters.
