Panelist – Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference "Literature of the Los Angeles Riots"

More than twenty years ago, the Los Angeles riots galvanized the city. As with such pivotal moments, writers grappled with history through the use of the written word, using fiction, poetry, and narrative nonfiction to search universal truths in such a vast city. But does literature have any responsibility to current events? Our five panelists, who have all written about the riots, discuss how their different narrative forms divulged the tension between history and prose.

Location: Room 518, LA Convention Center, Meeting Room Level
1201 South Figueroa St
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.
