In conjunction with with the U.S. premiere of A Man of Good Hope, BAM and PEN America bring together writers from around the world to address the many refugee crises facing the world today. South African author Jonny Steinberg (whose book was adapted for Isango Ensemble’s production) joins Ethiopian-American novelist and writer Dinaw Mengestu for a conversation moderated by Iranian-American writer Roya Hakakian. The three will discuss the role of literature in representing both the brutal realities and human dimensions of these massive crises.
The conversation is co-presented by BAM and PEN America. A Man of Good Hope will run Feb 15-19 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House. For more information, visit www.BAM.org.
