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.
