The Poetry & Fiction Series welcomes novelist Jenny Offill, author of Dept. of Speculation--named one of the 10 Best Books of the Year by the New York Times and shortlisted for the Folio Prize, the PEN/Faulkner Award, the International Dublin Literary Award, and the LA Times Book Prize. The reading is free and open to the public.
A 2016 Guggenheim fellow, Offill was recently named by the New York Times as part of the “New Vanguard” of women writers "who are opening new realms to us, whose books suggest and embody unexplored possibilities in form, feeling and knowledge.” Offill is also an award-winning writer of children’s books.
Please note, December 3 is a rescheduled date. The event was originally scheduled for November 7.
