Due to Hurricane Sandy, we have, unfortunately, had to cancel Apocalypse Now: A Conversation with Karen Thompson Walker.
A conversation with bestselling author Karen Thompson Walker on the subject of time, natural disasters, and apocalyptic visions and predictions. A Columbia MFA graduate, her first book The Age of Miracles has been featured in the New York Times and on NPR. Karen wrote the Age of Miracles while working in publishing. Moderated by Abby Kluchin, a founding faculty member of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research. Abby also teaches in Columbia University’s Core Curriculum and at the Cooper Union. She has a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Columbia and a longstanding devotion to speculative fiction.
Apocalypse Now: End Time and the Contemporary Imaginary is a yearlong series of conversations with writers, historians, and scientists that explores our current fascination with apocalyptic visions.
