Family Secrets (September 17, 1:30 pm)
The common adage “blood is thicker than water” doesn’t guarantee that family members will always be faithful and truthful to one another. Compelling new work from Joyce Carol Oates (A Book of American Martyrs), Lauren Sanders (The Book of Love and Hate), and Karl Ove Knausgaard (Autumn) illustrates the pain and drama of familial betrayal, from the destruction of one family by another, to a daughter discovering her father’s illicit behavior, to a well-meaning father who tries to prepare his unborn daughter for the strange mysteries of the world. Moderated by Mira Jacob (The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing).
