Walter Mosley and Boris Akunin—two venerated authors with sweeping careers that cross cultures, genres, and language barriers—come together for a rare conversation. How do these leading historical and crime fiction writers use contemporary political circumstances, and their own political activism, to inform their work? 

Co-sponsored by the New York Institute for the Humanities.
