About the event


Readers rely on books to transport them to places they fantasize about, places they hope to

see, and sometimes to celebrate the places they know well. These panelists shine with their

knowledge of setting: in Acid West, Josh Wheeler takes us to southern New Mexico and the

post nuclear-test landscape; Silas House (Southernmost) and Hannah Pittard (Visible Empire)

explore the complexities of the modern South; and Robert Olen Butler’s most recent work

explores the City of Light in 1915 in Paris in the Dark. Moderated by David Benedetto of WRBH.
