State By State: A Panoramic Portrait of America with Jonathan Franzen, Maria Tucci, Parker Posey and Others

7:00 p.m.

State By State: A Panoramic Portrait of America was inspired by the WPA State Guides of the 1930s. Editors Matt Weiland and Sean Wilsey wanted to know "what makes one state different form another? What are each state's particularities and idiosyncracies, their prejudices and biases, their beauty marks and moles, their cadences and jokes?" State by State answers these questions and more while portraying the beauty, the kitsch, the unexpected and the quintessential things that make America home. Weiland, the deputy editor of The Paris Review, and Wilsey, author of the bestselling memoir Oh The Glory Of It All and an Editor at Large at McSweeney's quarterly, first came together to create the bestselling book, The Thinking Fans Guide to the World Cup.Readers include Jonathan Franzen, Sarah Vowell, Peter Hirsch, Parker Posey, and Maria Tucci .Sponsored by the New School Writing Program.
