Mr. Hamill moderated this discussion about literature and the craft of writing with authors Toni Morrison and Frank McCourt. The authors discussed a wide range of subjects pertaining to books and writing, including: the role of the writer as an agent of social change; influential and important books; the ingredients of a bestselling book; the relationship of an author to his or her characters; and methods and habits of writing. After a lengthy discussion among themselves, the authors answered some questions from members of the audience. The organizers called this event “Literary Legends: Stories of Power and Passion.” and it was part of “The Nation’s Capital Distinguished Lecture Series” at the Kennedy Center. close
