JOHN FREEMAN AND ALEKSANDAR HEMON

Freeman's: Family is the second literary journal anthology in the series reviewers are calling “bold” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune) and “refreshing” (Chicago Literati). Following a debut issue on the theme of “Arrival,” Freeman circles a new topic whose definition is constantly challenged by the best of our writers: family. Freeman will be joined by Aleksandar Hemon, who will read from and discuss his contribution to the journal.

John Freeman was the editor of Granta until 2013. His books include How to Read a Novelist and Tales of Two Cities: the Best and Worst of Times in Today's New York. He is executive editor at the Literary Hub and teaches at the New School and New York University. Aleksandar Hemon is the author of The Lazarus Project, Question of Bruno, Nowhere Man, Love and Obstacles, and The Making of Zombie Wars. He was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a genius grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
