92 Street Y: Elizabeth Strout and John Edgar Wideman

92Y TALKS & READINGS

92Y Talks is home to the best civic conversations anywhere in the city. For decades, we’ve hosted incredible talks with some of the most influential leaders in culture, politics, business and the arts.

Anything is Possible is the new novel from Elizabeth Strout, author of My Name is Lucy Barton and the Pulitzer-Prize winning Olive Kittridge. “Writing of this quality comes from a commitment to listening, from a perfect attunement to the human condition, from an attention to reality so exact that it goes beyond a skill and becomes a virtue,” wrote Hilary Mantel. John Edgar Wideman’s new collection of stories is American Histories. “Like any great storyteller, he discovers the truth by telling the tale,” wrote Caryl Phillips. “Every story is a journey, unexpected and frightening, a deep plunge into the unconscious minds of those he has dared to commune with.”

For tickets and more information: Elizabeth Strout and John Edgar Wideman at 92Y
