The Literary Legacy of Occupy Wall Street

How has Occupy Wall Street been depicted in recent literature? Has it been depicted?

It’s been over five years since Occupy Wall Street first entered the public consciousness, with a lengthy stint in lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park and subsequent acts continuing the themes of community activism, including relief work in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. As the movement became more and more high-profile, there also seemed to be a literary component to it. Occupy Writers displayed signatures from thousands of literary figures in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street’s mission, including G. Willow Wilson, Jonathan Lethem, Porochista Khakpour, and Margaret Atwood.
