Booklist Adult Readers' Forum: The Post-9/11 Novel

By on

 

At the ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim, California, June 29, Booklist hosted a forum on the burgeoning genre of post-9/11 literature. Booklist Online Senior Editor Keir Graff (My Fellow Americans) led the panel of distinguished authors, including Carolyn See (Golden Days), speaking about conflating personal and global catastrophe; Janette Turner Hospital (Due Preparations for the Plague), discussing her visit to Ground Zero and how it influenced her book; and Ellen Gilchrist (A Dangerous Age), talking about the yet-unwritten definitive 9/11 book.
