In the DCJCC-hosted conversation The Freedom of the Writer and the Cruelties of History, acclaimed writers David Grossman, Azar Nafisi and Leon Wieseltier will exchange thoughts on weaving tragic histories and challenging conversations into their works. Jerusalem-born Grossman has had his works translated into more than 35 languages. Novels such as Someone to Run With and To the End of the Land have earned him high literary honors from France to Italy to his native Israel. Nafisi is best known as the author of the national bestseller Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books, which electrified readers with a compassionate and often harrowing portrait of the Islamic revolution in Iran and how it affected one university professor and her students. They'll share the stage with Kaddish author Wieseltier, who was the literary editor of The New Republic for more than a decade and is currently contributing editor at The Atlantic. When these three renowned literary luminaries join at D.C.'s Foundry United Methodist Church, they'll explore and explain their recent works and their creative processes. They'll also discuss the ways in which literature and fiction simultaneously define and transform cultures and communities.
