LIGHT THE DARK: A CONVERSATION ON CREATIVE INSPIRATION WITH JOE FASSLER 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14TH | 4PM

What do Neil Gaiman, Roxane Gay, Stephen King, and Junot Díaz all have in common? Their insights into creativity, inspiration, and how to tap into that ever-elusive muse are all collected in The Atlantic's "By Heart" interviewer Joe Fassler's new book, Light the Dark: Writer's on Creativity, Inspiration, and the Artistic Process. Fassler will be joined on stage by book critic, founder of #FridayReads, and author of The Books That Changed My Life, Bethanne Patrick, to explore the creative process of some of the most critically acclaimed and prolific writers working in the industry today. 

Joe Fassler will be available to sign copies of his book immediately following the discussion.
