An evening with two of Americas pre-eminent critics and authors as they discuss the torments and exhilarations of their pilgrimages to the past.

Last fall, Leon Wieseltier traveled for the first time to the remains of his parents towns in Galicia. As it happens, Daniel Mendelsohns family, also largely destroyed in the Holocaust, came from a town only a short distance away. These two distinguished Galitsianers will compare notes on the ruins of their common origins.
