Ayad Akhtar, Pulitzer Prize-winning author for his play Disgraced, blends fact and fiction in his latest work, the story of a Pakistani immigrant and his American-born son in post-Trump America. Homeland Elegies is a deeply personal narrative that explores fault lines that occur in families and countries, and the longing and dispossession that can result. Joining the author in conversation will be Julie DeLisle, former director of the Chatham Public Library.
