Knowing when to hold on and when to let go are common struggles in life and in love. Join three award-winning international authors for a discussion about both the fictional and real life experiences that shaped their latest English-translated novels. Japanese author Kyoko Nakajima accounts one woman’s nostalgic memories as recounted near the end of her life, in The Little House. Portugese author, journalist and playwright Inês Pedrosa will share the story of two lovers in limbo, still conversing with each other after one has died, in Still I Miss You. Israeli author Zeruya Shalev exposes how old passions can return, testing our capacity to make choices about what is most essential in life, in Pain. The conversation will be moderated by Steven W. Beattie. Hosted by David Yoon.
