Joyce Carol Oates and Jonathan Santlofer talk about the new anthology It Occurs to Me That I am America.  This book, featuring the work of 35 celebrated authors, is published in support of the American Civil Liberties Union on the one year anniversary of the inauguration of President Trump and the Women’s March on Washington.  The book “aims to address the anxiety many Americans are feeling about losing the freedoms for which we’ve fought; to remind us of America as an international symbol of hope; and considers the most basic notion of all: what it means to be an American” says author and editor Jonathan Santlofer.  Join us when Joyce Carol Oates and Jonathan Santlofer discuss this new book.

A book sale by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library follows the event.
