“The Dumbest Time in Human History”? Chronicling Culture with Matthew Gasda & Tara Isabella Burton

Wednesday June 26 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Join playwright Matthew Gasda (Dimes Square, Zoomers) and novelist Tara Isabella Burton (Here in Avalon) for a conversation about chronicling the post-pandemic era, the “vibe shift” of 2020-22, and capturing culture beyond the culture wars.

We’ll be discussing Matthew Gasda’s plays, Dimes Square and the new Zoomers, asking: “What does it mean to chronicle a culture?” Is it possible to capture an era — or a “vibe” — without making a piece feel dated or too wedded to contemporary discourse? How does the particular illuminate the generic?
