Join us tonight at 7 p.m. CT as we share a live video stream of the sold out Talking Volumes event with "Freedom" author Jonathan Franzen. Event information:
Talking Volumes returns to the Fitzgerald Theater on Tuesday, September 21st at 7:00 p.m. when Kerri Miller sits down to talk with Jonathan Franzen about his new book Freedom.
In his first novel since the 2001 National Book Award winner, The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen has given us an epic of contemporary love and marriage. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire.
In charting the mistakes and joys of Freedom's characters as they struggle to learn how to live in an ever more confusing world, Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time.
Streaming is free to the online viewer. Visit the Talking Volumes homepage tonight.
