The 35th annual Key West Literary Seminar—“Revealing Power: The Literature of Politics”—is set to begin in just a few minutes at the San Carlos Institute with the John Hersey Memorial Address by Robert A. Caro. We’ll be posting video of Caro’s keynote here tomorrow morning, along with a stream of images, audio recordings, and reportage from the event all weekend long. Follow along with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and please join in the conversation using the hashtag #kwls
Other writers featured at the 2017 Seminar include Ann Beattie, Stephen L. Carter, Teju Cole, Billy Collins, Gail Collins, Deborah Eisenberg, Garrett Epps, Annette Gordon-Reed, Joe Klein, Rachel Kushner, Thomas Mallon, Jane Mayer, Daniel Menaker, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter S. Onuf, George Saunders, Curtis Sittenfeld, Calvin Trillin, and Brenda Wineapple.
As always, Sunday afternoon’s session is free and open to the public: first-come, first-seated. And brand-new this year, as part of our Writers’ Workshop Program, is our Tuesday Night Craft Talks, also free and open to the public.
The topic for the 2018 Seminar will be announced on Saturday and registration will open on February 6. Stay tuned…
