In this Faith and Culture series conversation, author and series moderator Paul Elie invited acclaimed novelist Jonathan Franzen to carry forward a conversation they began two decades ago, before the 2001 publication of Franzen's novel The Corrections, winner of the National Book Award in fiction and a worldwide bestseller. They discussed fiction, contemporary affairs, and the religious imagination as they explored Franzen's most recent works—the novel Purity and the essay collection Farther Away.
A reception and book signing followed the event.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; the Pontifical Council for Culture; and the Office of the President.
