Event Details

How do we find the people and relationships that will prove meaningful in our lives? Families, both given and chosen, are a subject to which literature consistently returns—whether that’s defining what we think of as family, exploring the yearning for close connection, or depicting the struggle to cultivate deep relationships that are able to sustain us. Join the National Book Foundation for a conversation exploring how fiction tackles the defining and portraying of family, featuring 2018 Fiction Finalist Brandon Hobson (Where the Dead Sit Talking) and 2017 Young People’s Literature Winner Robin Benway (Far From the Tree). They will be in conversation with Tulsa City-County Regional Library Manager Rebecca Howard.
