Great Read in the Park
Panels will include authors such as Daniel Mendelsohn, Malika Oufkir, Abigail Thomas and Edmund White. On memoirs, they'll discuss whether the memoir autobiography is confessional or simply artful reminiscing? Do memoirs really tell the truth?
And then there's one of my favorite topics: Health, Wellness and the Politics of Food - how does what we eat not only affect our bodies, but also impact the world? This dynamic panel of food and nutrition experts debates the role that diet plays in both personal and global health, and presents a provocative look at food politics.
Panelists Carolyn Curiel, Frank Rich and Carla Robbins will talk about which voices on opinion pages are heard, why and which side to represent? This one is being moderated by Andrew Rosenthal, New York Times Deputy Editorial Page Editor.
I love this one!!! How much of an impact does the Book Review have on book sales? Would love to hear their insight versus the actual facts. There will also be a focus around latino writers: multicultural voices.
Unlike their predecessors who relied on translation to reach a wider audience, today’s Latina and Latino writers often produce their work in English, with the advantage of finding inspiration in two cultures.
Another great one. Religion: A Crisis of Faith. Panelists Bart D. Ehrman, Chris Hedges, Herbert Krosney, Suzanne Oliver, Ranya Idilby and Priscilla Warner will talk about the war on terror which has turned into a debate waged on religious terms.
