Description

Special Live Episode: “Fratelli Tutti and Fairview”

Join us for a live recording of Manifesto! A Podcast, your regular visit to the archives of vanity, where men and women who had stopped making myths turned to issuing commandments.

Your guides for this journey are Fairfield University Professor Phil Klay, author of Missionaries and the National Book Award-winning Redeployment, and Jacob Siegel, a senior writer at Tablet magazine. Our special guest, Vinson Cunningham, is a staff writer and a theater critic at The New Yorker. We will be discussing the most recent encyclical from Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti, as well as the play Fairview, by Jackie Sibblies Drury.

May you continue to be a person.

A Dartmouth College graduate, Klay served in Iraq’s Anbar Province as a public affairs officer before receiving his MFA from Hunter College of The City University of New York. His New York Times-bestselling short story collection, Redeployment, won the National Book Award for Fiction in 2014, and his debut novel, Missionaries was chosen by former President Barack Obama as one of his favorite books of 2020, and was also named one of “The 10 Best Books of 2020” by The Wall Street Journal. Klay’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek.
