Poisoned Roots

Saturday, November 13 at 1:00 PM

Virtual Event

The after-effects of war—hot or cold—reverberate through generations. This panel will explore how experiences of war shape even generations and societies who believe they’ve been spared. This is nothing new: as Homer warned, “Beware the toils of war . . . the huge dragnet sweeping up the world.” Can literature build antibodies by bringing those toxins to light? Featuring: Isabel Fargo Cole, Ivna Žic, Anna Baar, and Joshua Cohen. Moderated by festival co-curator Alta L. Price. > Details
