Jonathan Lethem on "The Ecstasy of Influence" - Ten Years Later

  • Voice of the City 3429 West Diversey Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

For our 10th anniversary, The Plagiarists are delighted to partner with Voice of the City to host New York Times bestselling author and MacArthur fellow Jonathan Lethem for a discussion about “The Ecstasy of Influence.” Ten years ago, Lethem’s essay on cultural ownership and artistic inspiration inspired us to form The Plagiarists, and it continues to guide all the work we produce. Come and find out how great artists are great thieves, where ideas come from, and most important of all, where they should go.
