Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Susan Faludi (In the Darkroom, Backlash) delivers the Festival’s closing address. She explores the theme of refuge, from the metaphorical shelter of books to the basic physical safety that millions seek today. Refuge, even more than freedom, has become the principle issue rocking our societies. Susan confronted the quandaries of refuge through the struggles of her father – who survived the Holocaust and later changed gender identity – bringing her experience to bear on urgent questions. When is refuge real and when is it illusory? And who among us doesn’t seek it?
