We're excited to team with the Chicago Humanities Festival to host one of the great masters of short fiction, MacArthur Fellow George Saunders, as he discusses his long-awaited first novel, Lincoln in the Bardo. Narrated by a dazzling chorus of voices, this book reimagines the death of Abraham Lincoln’s eleven-year-old son, Willie, at the dawn of the Civil War. Inspiring in its ambition and formal innovation, it may be Saunders’ most original and moving book yet. DePaul University Humanities Director Peter Steeves joins Saunders in conversation. This is a ticketed event. Find out more information and purchase your ticket at this link.

Ticket purchase includes a copy of Lincoln at the Bardo. An option for 1 book + 2 tickets is available through the box office at (312) 494-9509!
