      EVENT DETAILS
      Lise Funderburg With Sallie Tisdale, Kate Carroll de Gutes & Mat Johnson

      It happens to us all: we think we’ve settled into an identity, a self, and then out of nowhere and with great force, the traces of our parents appear to us, in us – in mirrors, in gestures, in reaction and reactivity, at weddings and funerals, and in troubled thoughts that crouch in dark corners of our minds. In Apple, Tree: Writers on Their Parents (University of Nebraska), edited by Lise Funderburg, 25 writers deftly explore a trait they’ve inherited from a parent, reflecting on how it affects the lives they lead today – and how it shifts their relationship to that parent (sometimes posthumously) and to their sense of self. Funderburg will be joined in conversation by contributors Sallie Tisdale, Kate Carroll de Gutes, and Mat Johnson.
