Join us as we explore the writers and thinkers who most influenced Philip Roth, from the sports and adventure novels that captivated him as a boy to the works of history that informed his late-career fiction – including the works of fiction he considered the most significant in his life and work, such as Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe, The Adventures of Augie March by Saul Bellow, The Trial by Franz Kafka, and Cheri by Colette. Panelists include biographers Claudia Roth Pierpont and Steven Zipperstein. The panel will be moderated by historian Sean Wilentz.
