George Saunders: Lincoln in the Bardo
Saturday, November 18, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Acclaimed author George Saunders’s latest novel, Lincoln in the Bardo, long-listed for the Man Booker Prize, is set in 1862. The Civil War is less than one-year old. President Lincoln’s beloved eleven-year-old son, Willie, dies and is laid to rest in a Georgetown cemetery. From that seed of historical truth, Saunders spins an unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a supernatural realm both hilarious and terrifying—an unforgettable imagining of familial loss.
This session is brought to you with the support of The Lillian Fine Memorial Literary Endowment.
