Faculty Reading Series-Joan Silber

Friday, March 22 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Sarah Lawrence is delighted to present a faculty reading series at the Bronxville Library.  Award-winning author and Sarah Lawrence faculty member Joan Silber will launch the series.   Book sales and signing will follow the readings.

Joan Silber is the author of eight books of fiction.  Her most recent book, Improvement, won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, the PEN/Faulkner Award and was listed among New York Times’ 100 Notable Books for 2018.  The novel revolves around a single mother whose boyfriend enlists her in a scheme to smuggle cigarettes across state lines, and Silber connects these contemporary New York characters with characters from 1970’s Turkey.

Silber has been the recipient of an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts.  Her short fiction has been chosen for the O. Henry Prize, Pushcart Prize, and Best American Short Stories.  Stories have appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Ploughshares, Epoch, Agni, Tin House, and many more.

A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Silber earned a Master’s degree from New York University and has taught at Sarah Lawrence College since 1985.

The writing program at Sarah Lawrence College is nationally recognized and includes a faculty of active and accomplished writers.

This program is free and open to the public.  No reservations are necessary.
