Family—that intimate nexus where private and public lives intersect; it’s where our identities are formed, where we have our first experiences of shared history and common fate. In an age of migration and global movement, the family unit has been strained, invigorated, and profoundly changed. Join writers P.F. Thomése, György Dragomán, and Yael Hedaya for a reflection on the role of family in their lives and work and on the challenges of defining a modern approach to the family experience in literature.
