2B: All-Conference Read in Fiction: PRIVATE CITIZENS by Tony Tulathimutte
Limited Capacity seats available

“Finally,” writes New York Magazine, “millennial heroes and heroines in a Great American Novel.” Join author Tony Tulathimutte for a discussion of a writer’s choices and strategies through the lens of his debut novel. Private Citizens is 21st century “comedy of manners,” following four estranged friends as they stagger through a maze of tech startups, protestors, gentrifiers, karaoke bars, house parties, and cultish self-help seminars, washing up in each other’s lives once again.

While we strongly encourage reading Private Citizens ahead of time, the conversation will be illuminating and meaningful to all.
