Event Details

Panelists: Jane Ganahl, David Talbot, Phil Bronstein, Gary Kamiya, Michelle Tea

Moderated by Jane Ganahl, this panel tackles “the city.” What's the enduring power of San Francisco as literary site, trope, problem, puzzle, mystery, icon? The City in fiction, The City in fact: where do they crossover, diverge, collide? Who are the great interpreters of The City then and now? What's right, what's wrong about portrayals? And, as this conference is meant to be the first of two, what questions about San Francisco can we bring to Los Angeles in February of 2014?
