CityLit Project joins the Enoch Pratt Free Library in presenting the CityLit Festival - Reimagined: a virtual celebration of the literary arts
This year’s Festival is a month-long engagement with premier poets and writers with special events each week and a daylong event on March 20, 2021.
At this event, Emily St. John Mandel and Jenny Offill will be in conversation about their work.
Jenny Offill is the author of the novels Last Things (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and a finalist for the L.A. Times First Book Award); Dept. of Speculation, which was shortlisted for the Folio Prize, the Pen Faulkner Award and the International Dublin Award; and most recently Weather, an instant New York Times Bestseller. She lives in upstate New York and teaches at Syracuse University and in the low residency program at Queens University.
Emily St. John Mandel's five novels include The Glass Hotel and Station Eleven, which was a finalist for a National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award and has been translated into thirty-two languages. She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.
*After the program, which will be held as a Zoom Webinar, those attending who wish to engage further with the featured authors about craft should register for The Writer’s Room through Eventbrite. The Writer's Room is a new Festival highlight designed to engage festival attendees, who are also writers, in an informal conversation with the featured guest authors. Participants are encouraged to come prepared with questions. They will receive a link to attend an informal Zoom Meeting through Eventbrite where featured authors will join attendees virtually face to face. Featured guest artists are open to discussing different aspects of writing including questions about craft, research, writing process, challenges, and questions about publication.
