Jim Shepard presents The World to Come
In conversation with Joshua Ferris
Beloved author and teacher Jim Shepard, called “the most ambitious story writer in America,” (Daily Beast), returns to Greenlight to present his fifth story collection The World To Come, which spans borders and centuries with unrivaled mastery. In each story the personal is the political as these characters face everything from the emotional pitfalls of everyday life to historic catastrophes on a global scale, and Shepard makes each of these wildly various worlds his own. Shepard discusses his work with his former student, bestselling author Joshua Ferris.
