BK: Adam Braver presents THE DISAPPEARED in conversation with Phillip Lopate

    10/18/2017 - 7:00pm

    A novel of two strangers swept up in the aftermath of politicized acts of violence. THE DISAPPEARED traces a pair of survivors: a woman whose husband is missing in a San Bernardino-type of attack, and a man who believes his sister was an unidentified victim of the '93 World Trade Center bombing. With a remarkable mix of nuance and momentum, Braver portrays their resistance to the relentless loop of public feedback
