Salon: Minimalism vs. Maximalism Smackdown!

Lit Fest 2017 Salons

Panelists: Sarah Manguso, Elizabeth McCracken, William Haywood Henderson, David Wroblewski

Is less really more, or is less sometimes… just less? We have authors who represent the entire spectrum of possibility, from the true minimalist à la Jacqueline Woodson or William Carlos Williams to outright bursting-at-the-seams maximalism (read: AS Byatt or Tolstoy). In this lively debate, our panelists will consider the impulses behind the different literary styles and conclude (or not) whether brevity is the true soul of wit.

Catered meal and beverages included in ticket price, available starting at 7:00 PM. Panel discussion begins at 8:00 PM.
