Readings and Conversations with Jesmyn Ward

Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 3:30 AM - 5:00 AM

Jesmyn Ward received her M.F.A. from the University of Michigan and is currently an associate professor of creative writing at Tulane University. She is the editor of the anthology The Fire This Time and the author of the novels Where the Line Bleeds and Salvage the Bones, the latter of which won the 2011 National Book Award and was a finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. In the forthcoming Sing, Unburied, Sing, Ward will return to Mississippi and the grand themes of her earlier work. Ward lives in DeLisle, Mississippi. In 2016, the American Academy of Arts and Letters selected Ward for the Strauss Living Award, a prize given every five years to enable authors to take time off from teaching and focus exclusively on writing.
