As part of the Library of Congress's "National Book Festival Presents" series, Jill Lepore (bestselling historian, New Yorker contributor, and Harvard professor) and John Haskell (director of the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress) discuss how the current pandemic, its effects and our reaction to them say something very real about America in this moment and in the historical record that will emerge from it.
