What Makes A Story Universal

  • Friday, 15th Nov
  • 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
  • Tata Theatre - NCPA

Great works of literature span generations and cultures, giving pleasure, insight and affirmation to vastly differing readers with strikingly dissimilar life experiences. Three leading writers discuss the attributes that make the same story appeal to readers of differing genders, ages, backgrounds, cultures and periods of time. What are the universal truths, and what enables some authors to put them down for all time?
