Every spring, three writers are selected as Writers House Fellows and invited to campus to read and discuss their work. Their visits are among the biggest Kelly Writers House events all year — last year, for instance, a visit from Fellow Joan Didion was named the House’s “Best of 2009.”
Joyce Carol Oates, the first Fellow to visit this year, will read her work tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Writers House and participate in an hourlong interview/conversation there tomorrow at 10 a.m.. She is the author of numerous novels and short story collections, as well as plays, poetry, literary criticism and essays.
Wish you could see Oates in person but can’t make it to campus for the big event? You’re in luck: The Writers House will broadcast a live video stream of both the reading and the discussion online via KWH-TV. (You can even e-mail or phone in your own questions for the Tuesday-morning session.)
