Pamela L. Laskin in conversation with Lisa Selin Davis
March 29, 2017, 7:00 PM
Ronit & Jamil, Pam Laskin’s five-act novel in verse, riffs on Shakespeare’s original star-crossed lovers, placing forbidden intimacy within the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and exploring walls both conceptual and concrete. Lost Stars, Lisa Selin Davis' novel based loosely on her own New York Times Modern Love column, couples astronomy and 1980s tunes with themes of tragedy and healing.
Together, the authors discuss allusion, hope, and love as modern as it is old.
