William Faulkner, one of America’s greatest novelists, lived a life scarcely depicted on screen. While tales of Yoknapatawpha County and Jefferson resonate with many people, less familiar is the creator of these worlds. Many do not know about the details of Faulkner the man, like the jobs he worked to support his family, the tragedies of his personal life, and his brief stint in the Canadian military. Anita Modak-Truran, executive producer of the first official Faulkner documentary, and Lee Caplin, the representative of the Faulkner Estate and Hollywood movie producer, will share with you the legacy of William Faulkner and his continued relevance in our society. Faulkner’s work resonates even more strongly in the current political and social environment than ever before.
