Come join Julia Alvarez, Dana Gioia, Ron Hansen, Alice McDermott, Kevin Starr, Tobias Wolff and many more leading writers, critics, scholars, editors, and journalists—young and old, Catholic and non-Catholic–in a dynamic, serious (but never pious) conversation about the relationship between faith and literature in contemporary American culture.
