Saul Bellow: Letters, edited by Benjamin Taylor, was on multiple top 10 book lists in 2010 and was described by John Barron in the Chicago Sun-Times as offering “an alluring backstory to the Chicago-bred imagination that… won the Nobel Prize.” Join Taylor and Janis Freedman-Bellow, who was instrumental in combing her husband’s archives, for a conversation about putting together this remarkable collection. They are joined by Jonathan Wilson, fiction writer (A Palestine Affair), Bellow scholar, and director of the Center for the Humanities at Tufts University. This program is presented as part of One Book, One Chicago.
