Twenty writers will give two-minute readings from their current nonfiction work regarding the family. These memoirs and meditations on what family means—their own, their many families, and other people’s—are candid, creative, often personal, sometimes provocative, and broadly compelling because grounded in experience and written with courage. The readings will be given back to back (20 writers x 2 minutes each = 40 minute reading), creating a new communal text. Afterwards, 10 minutes will be available for questions and discussion.
