Marilynne Robinson in Conversation

Synopsis

Celebrated US novelist and essayist Marilynne Robinson reflects on hope and generosity in tumultuous times.

In her latest book of essays, What Are We Doing Here?, Robinson considers pressing questions of the state of democracy, the role of the media in public life and the place of religion in contemporary society.

In the face of rising cultural and political pessimism, Robinson reminds us of the way beauty shapes and even disciplines our daily life, and how hope might lead us out of the mire of the present.
