Being a Writer—Amity Gaige

Fri., Nov. 30; 2 p.m.
Location: KF Room

Last of three Library lectures. Series cost: $20; Fellows: no charge. Register online.

Amity Gaige will begin her lecture with short readings from her three books. Then she will discuss the way "being a writer" has led to both joy and sorrow (but mostly joy), ever since she published her first book in 2004. For the rest of the session, she is happy to take questions from you about the goals, values, and logistics of the writing life.

Amity Gaige is the author of three novels, O My DarlingThe Folded World, and Schroder.  A New York Times Notable Book, Schroder has been translated into 18 languages, and was shortlisted for UK’s The Folio Prize in 2014. Gaige is the winner of a Fulbright Fellowship, fellowships at the MacDowell and Yaddo colonies, a Baltic Writing Residency, and a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship. From 2010–16, she was the Writer-in-Residence at Amherst College, and now teaches at Yale.
