We all cross borders, whether geographical, emotional, or even digital. In our current age, humans are more mobile, and displaced, than they have ever been. These celebrated border-crossers and novelists have spent a great deal of time contemplating a life between the lines. How do we stay grounded in a world that’s contstantly in flux? With Lesley Nneka Arimah (‘What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky’), Carolina De Robertis (‘The Gods of Tango’), Laleh Khadivi (‘A Good Country’), and Pajtim Statovci (‘My Cat Yugoslavia’). Moderated by the Center for the Art of Translation’s Michael Holtmann.
