How can fiction work to increase readers’ understanding of disenfranchised communities and shape discourse within those communities? At Boise State University, join 2018 National Book Awards–honored authors Rebecca Makkai (The Great Believers) and Nafissa Thompson-Spires (Heads of the Colored People) for a discussion on the portrayal of vulnerable people, the responsibilities of the fiction writer, and the emotional connections forged through literature.
