Writer Chang-rae Lee

EducationThe recent news that writer Chang-rae Lee went sci-fi was like learning Dylan had gone electric. It was a major shift from an acclaimed author whose precise and gorgeously grounded novels -- Native Speaker, A Gesture Life, Aloft -- are already considered classics of realism. But, of course, Lee pulled it off beautifully: His latest On Such a Full Sea is a triumph of dystopian fiction (and of literary fiction in general) and winner of this year's Chicago Tribune Heartland Award for Fiction. Come hear Lee share his perspective on writing and reading, and why storytelling remains a powerful tool for thinking about how we live with others. Jennifer Day, editor of the Trib's Sunday book section, joins him for a conversation sponsored by the Chicago Humanities Festival.
