Every year, the LRU Visiting Writers Series invites authors to tell the stories behind their own works in a relaxed environment before university and community audiences. We invite you to come listen to Abigail DeWitt, author of three novels, Lili (WW Norton), Dogs (Lorimer Press), and News of Our Loved Ones (HarperCollins). News of Our Loved Ones, her most recent novel, was named an Editor’s Choice by both Book Browse and the Historical Novel Society. Often compared to Irène Némerovsky’s Suite Française, the novel, based on DeWitt’s family’s experiences during WWII, received rave reviews from Booklist, Ms. Magazine, Lilith, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Book Page, The Greensboro News & Record, The Wilmington Star, and many other publications.
The event will be held in the Belk Centrum on LRU campus. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets may be obtained by calling 828.328.7206 or going to the box office in PE Monroe Auditorium.
