Featuring Emily Gordon (The Big Sick), Michael Koskoff (Marshall) and Michael Mitnick (The Current War). Moderated by Thelma Adams.

Hear from writers who are proving the maxim that real life can sometimes be stranger – or at least more entertaining – than fiction.

How does one choose which chapter in an extraordinary life to bring to the fore?
