Jennifer Egan Explores PowerPoint Fiction

The slide show is part of her new novel, A Visit from the Goon Squad. You can see the slideshow here.

Egan spoke at BEA’s 7x20x21 event, a BEA presentation discussion curated by Ryan Chapman and Ami Greko. They gave a number of industry professionals seven minutes to present on 20 slides–allowing only 21 seconds to talk about each picture.
