Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Paul Harding (Tinkers) will join other members of the Stony Brook Southampton faculty — including Cornelius Eady, Amy Hempel, Julie Sheehan, Susan Scarf Merrell, Roger Rosenblatt, and others — at the 2018 fall Writers Speak Wednesdays on October 3. This series of free author talks and readings open to the public begin at 7 PM in Duke Lecture Hall, following a reception at 6:30 PM.
The event will be preceded by an Open House and informational session at 5:30 PM for those seeking an MFA in Creative Writing and Literature. Program Director Lou Ann Walker and other faculty members will discuss the MFA workshops in fiction, memoir, creative nonfiction, poetry, and more, all taught by distinguished working writers.
All prospective students interested in attending the Open House are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org. No RSVP is required to attend Writers Speak programs.
Other writers scheduled for the fall series include Jonathan Santlofer, November 7; Alison Fairbrother and Alexandra Scholldorf, November 28; and Lloyd Schwartz, December 5.
Until completion of renovations in the Radio Lounge, all programs will be held in Duke Lecture Hall on the first floor of Chancellors Hall at Stony Brook Southampton, at 39 Tuckahoe Road.
