Symphony Space invited three renowned biographers, James Atlas, Edmund Morris, and Stacy Schiff, to reveal the fascinating, all-absorbing process of researching and writing another person's life story.

The conversation delved deeply into the challenges the authors encountered and the pleasures they enjoyed in writing the lives of Ronald Reagan, Theodore Roosevelt, Vera Nabakov, and Saul Bellow, as well as the difficulty of getting past the unreliable narrator.

This special event was recorded live as part of the Thalia Book Club series at Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City. Download and start listening now!
