Molly Pulda, Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholar in the Humanities at USC, moderates a conversation with three writers: Leo Braudy, University Professor, Bing Professor of English at USC, and author of Trying to Be Cool: Growing Up in the 1950s; Dinah Lenney, Assistant Professor in the Master of Professional Writing Program and author of the forthcoming memoir The Object Parade; and Louise Steinman, author of The Crooked Mirror: A Memoir of Polish-Jewish Reconciliation. The conversation will focus on the challenges and rewards of mining and contextualizing memory: how do people, place, and time conspire to help us understand who we are and how we got here?
