Christian Kiefer, Lauren Wilkinson, Takis Würger, moderated by Frances Dinkespiel

Fiction can illuminate the lived experience of intense inner conflict. Torn between community and country, struggling with duty and desire, and stuck in the gray area between right and wrong, the characters in these novels are pulled in competing directions. Christian Kiefer (“Phantoms”), Lauren Wilkinson (“American Spy”), and Takis Würger (“The Club”) create dynamic worlds in dazzling prose where dangerous secrets bubble just under the surface and protagonists must ask themselves who to believe and who to blame.
