Join us at Harvard LITFest February 3rd and 4th! Harvard’s annual celebration of the literary community kicks off with a Friday evening of storytelling, then brings you a full Saturday of workshops, readings, discussions, and tastings. Highlights include a keynote address by Tom Perrotta on his book and HBO series The Leftovers, an impassioned conversation between National Book Award-winner James Carroll and Mother Jones founding publisher Richard Parker on how literature can confront the politics of our time, a food-writing workshop with expertly sourced truffles, and an of-the-moment account of how to break into publishing, by recent Harvard grads whose books are making it.
Combining ‘Pangea’ — the world continent — and ‘gyrus’– the ridges of the cerebral cortex crucial to verbal association, Pangyrus is about connection.
