PEN Out Loud: Brandon Hobson and Rebecca Makkai in Conversation

National Book Award finalist Brandon Hobson celebrates his latest novel, The Removed. Weaving together multiple first-person narrators and Cherokee folklore, the novel tells the story of a Cherokee family fifteen years after an unjust police shooting of one of the family’s three children. Hobson will be in conversation with Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Makkai to discuss the novel and its “meditation on family, grief, home, and the power of stories on both a personal and ancestral level.” 

Tickets are available here!
