Hanya Yanagihara became a publishing sensation after the release of the epic, Booker-nominated A Little Life, famously written outside of her day job as a magazine editor in New York. Her latest literary feat, To Paradise, is as bold and sweeping as its predecessor, charting the elusive promise of utopia across three alternate visions of the American experiment.

In this special out-of-season event, Yanagihara sits down with writer Bri Lee to share the impetus behind her sprawling and exquisite new book, how the themes of family, love and loss inform her fiction, and how she balances her demanding post as editor in chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine with her life as a novelist.

Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to hear directly from Yanagihara herself about her creative obsessions, anxieties, and making art in turbulent times.
