Join historian-turned-artist Nell Painter for an intimate conversation with acclaimed writer Vivian Gornick about the joys and challenges of turning one's lived experiences into written narrative. In her new book, Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over (Counterpoint, June 2018), Painter explores questions of gender, race, and what it means to be an artist through her journey of attending art school after her retirement from Princeton University as an American history professor.
