Resonances: Contemporary Writers on the Classics

Before the flame, a spark.

Each year, a group of Festival authors are invited by Baruch College’s Great Works program to comment on a classic work of literature or author that influenced their own work. Panelists speak about the great works that affected them, read from their own work or their chosen classic text to illustrate the impact, then engage in discussion with the audience.
