PEN Festival Panel with President Roxana Robinson Explores the Ferrante Phenomenon

In late April, Authors Guild president Roxana Robinson participated in a program exploring the Italian literary sensation Elena Ferrante at the Greene Space in New York City. Robinson joined Ann Goldstein, translator of Ferrante and an editor at The New Yorker, and the author Judith Thurman for a wide-ranging conversation on the Ferrante phenomenon, touching on the panelists’ own experiences with Ferrante’s work as well as her place in the twenty-first century literary landscape.

A recording of the event, which was co-presented with the PEN World Voices Festival, has now been posted to YouTube.
