UJA-JCC Greenwich and AuthorsLive at Greenwich Library present Wildland: An Evening with Author Evan Osnos
Limited in-person attendance at Greenwich Library, 101 West Putnam Avenue, and via Zoom. First come, first served.
After a decade abroad, the National Book Awardand Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Evan Osnos returns to Greenwich and two other U.S. cities he once called home, to illuminate the seismic changes in American politics and culture that crescendoed during the pandemic. His conversations with local residents in all three places coax out intricate details of individual lives and how they entwine with the state of the nation. Whether exploring the rightward shift of the Republican Party here in Greenwich, the collapse of social infrastructure and possibility in Clarksburg, WV or the compounded effects of segregation and violence in Chicago, IL, Wildland: The Making of America's Fury exposes critical fault lines in the national psyche and envisions what it will take to once again see ourselves as larger than the sum of our parts.
