Elizabeth Kostova, bestselling author of The Historian, hosts this event with Garrard Conley and Garth Greenwell. Garrard is the author of Boy Erased, the "moving and thought-provoking" story of his time in a church-supported conversion therapy program that his parents believed would “cure” him of his homosexuality (Booklist). Garrard is an English professor at the American College of Sofia. Garth Greenwell is the author of What Belongs to You, a “sexually frank, deeply felt, and admirably constructed first novel” about an expat in Sofia, Bulgaria who falls for a hustler as both search for intimacy (Booklist). Garth's novella "Mitko" won the 2010 Miami University Press Novella Prize. Author and illustrator Kate Gavino will be Skyping in to do an installment of her popular series, “Last Night’s Reading,” where she illustrates the authors and records the best quotes from the event!
