Who Do You Write For?

Event Date: 
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 – 7:00pm9:00pm
Center for Fiction, NYC


Have you ever read a novel and felt as though the author was speaking directly to you? Or about you? Guernica and The Common  contributors come together to read from and discuss fiction they feel was written just for them and who their own work is addressed to, if anyone. Featuring Benjamin Anastas, Dina Nayeri, Kiese Laymon. Moderated by The Common Editor in Chief Jennifer Acker and Guernica Senior Fiction Editor Meakin Armstrong.
