The Ever Expanding World of Literary Criticism

  • The Center for Fiction 17 East 47th Street New York, NY, 10017 United States (map)

The National Book Critics Circle is delighted to present a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend event! 

Writing about books -- starting conversations about a novel, a poem, a literary career -- combines passion with dedication. Five active literary and cultural critics, all members of the National Book Critics Circle board, discuss the art of writing about books. These panelists differ in background and experience; some write for legacy newspapers, others for online venues. All represent criticism as an engaging activity that challenges each to be perpetually in search of the new.
