My Salinger Year with author Joanna Rakoff
June 30, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
At twenty-three, after leaving graduate school to pursue her dreams of becoming a poet, Joanna Rakoff moves to New York City and takes a job as assistant to the storied literary agent for J. D. Salinger. Precariously balanced between glamour and poverty, surrounded by titanic personalities, and struggling to trust her own artistic instinct, Rakoff is tasked with answering Salinger’s voluminous fan mail. She finds her own voice by acting as Salinger’s, on her own dangerous and liberating terms.
