NYIH Conversations

Nov 12, 2019

Lawrence "Ren" Weschler is the former director of the New York Institute for the Humanities and a two-time winner of the George Polk Award and won the 2007 National Book Critics Circle award for criticism. In this episode, Weschler describes the extraordinary and taxing story behind the writing of his most recent book, a biographical memoir of his late friend Oliver Sacks--a story that took almost three decades before culminating in the now published And How Are You, Dr. Sacks?
