Panel with A.S. King, Aaron Starmer, and Siobhan Vivian – moderated by Sarah Pitre
Description: We all have moments in life when it feels like The End – we fail the huge test, lose the big love, confront the seismic shift in family dynamic. Some ends are bigger than others, but all feel the same: irrevocable, irreparable; and all share the same truth: we survive them. Today, A.S. King, Aaron Starmer, Rachel Cohn, and Siobhan Vivian get together to discuss how they each survived their own personal apocalypse and how the characters in their new novels navigate catastrophic cataclysms large and small.
