Benjamin Moser - Sontag: Her Life and Work — in conversation with Elizabeth Bruenig

Upcoming Event
Thursday, September 26, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Moser’s comprehensive biography of Susan Sontag (1933-2004), one of the most formidable thinkers of the twentieth century, draws on special access to Sontag’s restricted archive—full of unpublished journals, medical files, personal papers, and computer files—as well as on interviews with Sontag’s wide circle, including people key to her life who haven’t spoken publically about her, such as Salman Rushdie and Annie Leibovitz. Synthesizing this amazing trove of material into a fascinating narrative, Moser, tapped for the job by Sontag’s son, agent, and publisher on the strength of his outstanding life of Clarice Lispector, Why This World, gives new insight into Sontag’s personal life and illuminates her many public sides. Moser will be in conversation with Elizabeth Bruenig, Washington Post opinion columnist.
