BROOKLYN BOOK FESTIVAL: Icons of American Culture

Sunday Oct 04, 2020
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

A handsome baseball star, a Los Angeles talent manager who was in all the wrong places at all the wrong times, and a certain “nasty woman” who won a certain popular vote, reimagined through historical fiction—these characters prove that fame, in any field, has its price. Join celebrated writer and filmmaker Nelson George (The Darkest Hearts), debut novelist Emily Nemens (The Cactus League), and New York Times best-selling author Curtis Sittenfeld (Rodham) for a discussion of pop culture and politics. Moderated by Nicholas Mancusi, author of A Philosophy of Ruin.
