Literary Fiction Panel II

Debut novelist Gabriel Tallent, author of “My Absolute Darling“; Shanthi Sekaran, author of the acclaimed novel “Lucky Boy“; and Kansas City’s Whitney Terrell, author of “The Good Lieutenant — named “the best novel of the Bush Wars” by The Guardian — discuss crafting searing and relevant fiction that helps us empathize with parts of the American experience otherwise foreign to many readers, including immigration, war and economic hardship.
