Andrew Solomon - Far and Away: Reporting from the Brink of Change — at Sixth & I

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

A Columbia professor of psychology and president of PEN American Center, Solomon is best-known as the author of the bestselling Far From the Treewinner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, and The Noonday Demon, winner of the National Book Award. This new book, Far and Away, is a collection of essays gathered from his writings of the last twenty-five years and shifts Solomon’s focus slightly from individuals to nations, even as each piece conveys Solomon’s signature compassion and remarkable insight. Concentrating on moments of transition, the work constitutes a global look at social change, from the attempted 1991 coup in Russia that failed to reverse Gorbachev’s move away from communism, to Afghanistan’s post-Taliban efforts to restore its previous culture and society, to Myanmar’s slow steps to a more open, democratic system.

Solomon will be in conversation with Azar Nafisi, author of The Republic of Imagination.
