Two sets of on-stage conversations between authors who integrate key themes of coming-of-age:

Missing Persons: Authors consider missing men, women, children, telling stories of individual lives—and of societies—gone awry.

Fend for Yourself: Authors explore the hard truths of coming of age, with stories of resilience, independent thinking, and self-knowledge.
