Boston University was the epicenter of thinking about narrative non-fiction last weekend. Great talks by Gay Talese, Bill Keller, Buzz (Fucking) Bissinger, Adam Hochschild and others — including a couple of brilliant speakers from the other side of the street, novelists Ha Jin and Allegra Goodman.
A favorite moment: seeing Gay Talese sitting in the right-field bleachers at Fenway. I snapped this shot with my phone camera. Next to Talese is the writer Isabel Wilkerson (the main organizer of the conference); taking his seat is our dean, Tom Fiedler.
