Writers at Rutgers

Under the direction of Richard Tayson, the Writers at Rutgers series brings nationally recognized authors to campus. Visiting writers give public readings, and often meet with literature classes or lead writing workshops while at Rutgers. The series is sponsored by the Office of Student Leadership, Involvement, and Programs, with additional support from the English Department and the Friends of Rutgers English.

The series will feature three readings in the spring semester:

Maggie Anderson will read on February 19. She is the author of four books of poetry and the editor of several poetry anthologies, and directs the poetry program at Kent State University.

Jhumpa Lahiri will read on March 31. The youngest writer to receive the Pulitzer Prize, she is the author of the critically acclaimed collection of stories Interpreter of Maladies. Her first novel, The Namesake, was published in September 2003.

Edmund White will read on April 14. He is the author of numerous books of fiction, non-fiction, and plays, and currently directs the creative writing program at Princeton University. His most recent book, Fanny: A Fiction, was published in 2003.
