I'm out in Iowa City to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Writers' Workshop. Last night, Marilynne Robinson gave a profound and hilarious speech about the state of writing in America today. There are panels running throughout the weekend, with a wonderful crop of writers in attendance. The panel I'm appearing on is set for Saturday. And I have the honor of sharing the stage with Stuart Dybek, Robert Hass, and Yiyun Li. We will be discussing something high minded.
