Francine Prose

As part of Pen, Paper and Palate
Presented in association with Ruda Beresford Dauphin

Moderated by BBC host and Booker Prize judge Frank Delaney

Tuesday, April 7 | 7:30 pm

“Significant writers are rare. A writer like Prose, who is not only significant but capable of writing brilliantly about pretty much anything—from obsessive love to religious ecstasy to life in Paris in the twenties and beyond—is not only rare. She is, essentially, the Hope Diamond of literature.” - Michael Cunningham

Francine Prose is the author of twenty works of fiction. Her novel A Changed Man won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, and Blue Angel was a finalist for the National Book Award. Her most recent works of nonfiction include the highly acclaimed Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife, and The New York Times bestseller Reading Like a Writer. The recipient of numerous grants and honors, including a Guggenheim, a Fulbright, and a Director’s Fellow at the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library, Prose is a former president of PEN American Center, and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Join us for a special evening celebrating Prose’s writing career and exploring her relationship between art and literature.

This event is likely to sell out as space is very limited. Please book early.
