Joan Frank, Dorothy Lazard, and Jane Smiley, moderated by John Freeman
Each of us has a different relationship with the books we read…and write. That is no less true if you’ve just published your first, as legendary librarian Dorothy Lazard has, than it is for Joan Frank, with a dozen publications under her belt. It’s also true, of course, for Pulitzer Prize winners like Jane Smiley. Each of these authors has had a decades-long love affair with books; in this session, they’ll tell you not only what they were reading, but how it affected them and their work.
