Lisa Cohen, assistant professor of English at Wesleyan University, is the author of the highly acclaimed biography All We Know: Three Lives, described with “unqualified enthusiasm” by The New Yorker critic Hilton Als as a “remarkable, sui generis study” of three once well-known “modernist figures”—Esther Murphy, Mercedes de Acosta, and Madge Garland—their contributions to modernist culture, and their fear of “failure” and of “self-exposure” as lesbians. 

Hilton Als will join Professor Cohen in a discussion of her work, along with moderator Heather Love, associate professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of Feeling Backward: Loss and the Politics of Queer History (2007).
