Literary Reportage: The Forensics of Crisis

22 maja, 2009

An International Conversation with Wojciech Tochman, Francisco Goldman, and Jonathan Brent, moderated by Marcela Valdes.

Literary Reportage: The Forensics of Crisis: brings together three authors who have come to the field of reportage from very different backgrounds. In his devastating book Like Eating a Stone: Surviving the Past in Bosnia, Warsaw-based journalist Wojciech Tochman follows both Polish forensic scientist Ewa Klonowska as she exhumes mass graves in Bosnia, and the families of the victims as they wait for their loved ones to be identified. Novelist Francisco Goldman expanded a 1999 New Yorker article about the murder of Guatemalan bishop Juan Gerardi into a widely acclaimed classic of investigative journalism, The Art of Political Murder: Who Killed the Bishop?, which had direct impact on the most recent Guatemalan elections. In his book The Stalin Archives: Discovering the New Russia, historian Jonathan Brent, Editor-in-Chief of Yale University Press and founder of Yale’s Annals of Communism series, relates a tale of his own encounters with bureaucracy and everyday life in post-Soviet Russia that is as grim as it is gripping. Moderator Marcela Valdes is a Contributing Editor to Publishers Weekly, Books Editor of The Washington Examiner, a former NBCC Board Member, and a recent recipient of a 2010 Nieman Foundation Fellowship at Harvard University.

The discussion will be followed by a wine and cheese reception, during which authors will sign their books, which will be available for purchase.

This event is organized in conjunction with The Polish Book Institute’s exhibition at Book Expo America (Javits Center, Booth #2423).
