Author Michael Cunningham will come to Emerson College next week for a reading and Q&A session as part of the Writing, Literature and Publishing Reading Series.
The Q&A will take place at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 28, in the Multipurpose Room of the Max Mutchnick Campus Center. The reading will follow at 6:00 pm in the Bright Family Screening Room of the Paramount Center. Students, faculty, staff, and the public are welcome.
Cunningham is the author of The Hours, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the PEN/Faulkner Award in 1999. He also wrote the novels A Home at the End of the World, Flesh and Blood, The Snow Queen, Specimen Days, and By Nightfall, as well as the non-fiction book, Land's End: A Walk in Provincetown. His new book, A Wild Swan and Other Tales (illustrated by Yuko Shimizu), will be published in November. He teaches creative writing at Yale University and lives in New York.
The Department of Writing, Literature, and Publishing brings renowned published authors like Cunningham to Emerson as part of the WLP Reading Series, and hosts the Faculty and Alumni Reading Series to highlight the accomplishments of faculty and alumni writers. Both series invite authors representing various genres to share their work, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. All events are free and open to the public.
