Cathleen Schine and Adam Gopnik
In Conversation

In the essay “Place in Fiction,” Eudora Welty posited that “Every story would be another story, and unrecognizable as art, if it took up its characters and plot and happened somewhere else.” Join two quintessentially New York writers, best-selling novelist Cathleen Schine, author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport (Picador, 2011), a humorous novel about three Upper West Side women who move to a cottage in Westport to re-group, and Adam Gopnik, columnist for The New Yorker and author of Through the Children’s Gate: A Home in New York (Vintage, 2007), a collection of essays about life in New York since 2000, for a conversation about the role place has played in their work.
