Global Literary Encounters book discussions are pre-lecture discussions that align with the Pittsburgh Arts & Lecture's Ten Evenings series. Global Literary Encounters put prominent world authors and their work in a global perspective in order to provide additional insight on writers and engaging issues.

These pre-lecture discussions, hosted by the Global Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh, will take place via Zoom at 6pm EST. Please note that the "Global Literary Encounters" pre-lecture discussions are held on the Thursday before the Author Lectures, which are held on the following Monday and hosted by Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures.
