talk, screening & booksigning for "State by State"
Saturday, September 27 at 7:30 pm
Inspired by the WPA guides of the Thirties and Forties, 50 contemporary writers have produced original pieces of reportage and memoir that capture the 50 states in our time. "State by State: A Panoramic Portrait of America" is an American road trip in book form featuring original writing on all 50 states by 50 of our finest novelists, journalists, and essayists. Join editor Sean Wilsey and other contributors as we celebrate the publication of this new book and screen a short film on its making.
Sean Wilsey is the author of the memoir, "Oh the Glory of It All," and the co-editor of "The Thinking Fan's Guide to the World Cup." His writing has appeared in the New Yorker, the London Review of Books, the Los Angeles Times, and McSweeney’s quarterly, where he is the editor at large.
