Hidden in Plain Sight: Secrets in the Age of Transparency
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Secrets have always been crucial to storytelling. But now, in an era of all-revealing autofiction, WikiLeaks, presidential hush money, and #MeToo, there's been a shift in how we perceive hidden information—how it reflects truth and what it shows us about who we are. Drawing from Bookforum's special summer issue, the panelists will consider how authors think about secrets today: Does sharing them bring us closer to truth? Or is oversharing just another means of hiding? Featuring Christian Lorentzen, Minna Zallman Proctor, and Rachel Syme. Moderated by Bookforum editor Michael Miller.
