They mysterious "S." has finally arrived and tonight its creators, Emmy-award winning filmmaker J.J. Abrams and PEN/Hemingway-nominated novelist Doug Dorst, sit down with "Girls" creator Lena Dunham to unwrap it. Conceived and developed by the man who gave us such enigmas as "Lost," "Cloverfield," and "Alias," "S." is a mysterious, multi-layered novel that interconnects at least four different narratives. Providing a tactile experience, the book's pages contain handwritten letters, newspaper clippings, postcards, an old napkin and even a decoder ring. For this evening's discussion, Dorst and Abrams discuss their collaborative process and offer up John Hancock's following. Sarah Vowell introduces the event, which doubles as a fundraiser for writing center 826NYC.
