Reason Speakeasy: George Dawes Green

    6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Q&A with novelist and Moth founder George Dawes Green

About this event

Join Reason Editor at Large Nick Gillespie for a live taping of The Reason Interview podcast on Wednesday, July 27, at New York’s Sheen Center for Thought & Culture.

Doors open at 6pm, interview starts at 7pm sharp, program ends at 8.30pm.

The Reason Speakeasy is a monthly, unscripted conversation with outspoken defenders of free thinking and heterodoxy in an age of cancel culture and thought police.

This event features Nick talking with George Dawes Green, whose new book is the chilling, historically charged murder mystery The Kingdoms of Savannah. George is a singular voice in American letters and a unique raconteur whose own past includes stints living in a cemetery and running a company that sold clothes made from rare, handwoven fabrics from Guatemala. Two of his previous novels, The Caveman’s Valentine and The Juror, were turned into movies and a third, Ravens, drew rave reviews. He’s also the founder of The Moth, the wildly acclaimed and popular show and podcast that has redefined personal storytelling in the Internet Age.

We’ll talk about his experiences on the frontiers of creative expression and the ways in which the past doggedly informs the present, whether in his native Georgia or post-COVID New York.
