Harvard Book Store and GrubStreet welcome JOHN FREEMAN, editor of Freeman’s, for a discussion of the literary biannual’s latest volume, Family: The Best New Writing on Family. John will be joined in conversation by acclaimed author CLAIRE MESSUD.
With outstanding work from literary heavyweights and up-and-coming writers alike, Freeman’s: Family collects the most amusing, heartbreaking, and probing stories about family life today.
“Freeman draws from a global cache of talent . . . This collection takes on the family from within and without, in ways one might expect and others totally unanticipated, for an expansive reading experience.” —Kirkus Reviews
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
