The Boston Book Festival brings together writers whose work is about terror and terrorism. Whether writing to induce terror or writing about the minds of those who seek to terrify, they plumb the depths of the psyche to explore fear. Former CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson draws on her spy experience in her novel, Blowback, while Mary Louise Kelly, who covered the intelligence community for NPR, writes about nuclear terrorism in Anonymous Sources. Writer, director, producer and actor Wes Craven is a master of the thriller, including Nightmare on Elm Street and The Hills Have Eyes. Terrorism expert Jessica Stern comes to the subject with a history of having been terrorized, which she describes in Denial: A Memoir. Moderated by Time magazine’s political columnist, Joe Klein. Sponsored by Boston Metro.
