Award-Winning Writer Lauren Groff Visits Writers House Virtually

National Book Award Finalist and Story Prize winning fiction writer, Lauren Groff, will be reading for the Writers House on Wednesday, February 10, at 4:00 pm. The event will take place virtually via Zoom.

Groff has written two short story collections, including “Florida” (2018), and three novels, including “Fate and Furies” (2015). “Fate and Furies” became a New York Times best seller and was chosen as former President Barack Obama’s favorite book of 2015. 

Groff has been both a Guggenheim and Radcliffe fellow, and she is considered one of the “best young American novelists” according to Granta Magazine. Her work has appeared in numerous venues, including a recent short story in The New Yorker.

The Writers House has an incredibly strong slate of writers ‘visiting’ Merrimack this semester. Later this month, Carmen Giménez Smith will do a virtual talk. Weike Wang and Marquis Daisy will each do readings in March.
