JENNIFER EGAN I love the feeling of being delivered out of my self and into another world. I balk when I start to feel like anything is about myself, or someone like me—and I’m terrible at writing about people I know, so I’ve given that up, much to the joy of my family and friends. Whenever I feel like I’m developing a path of least resistance I try to resist it.
Students, professors, alumni, and community members came together in Johnson Chapel at Amherst College from February 28-March 2 to hear National Book Award finalists Jennifer Egan, Brandon Hobson, and Jamel Brinkley speak about their writing process, what writing means to them, and the purpose of writing.
STAFF PICKS TC staff and interns are busily reading in anticipation of LitFest, so we're recommending new work by the National Book Award finalists, Pulitzer Prize winners, and NYT's bestsellers who will be visiting us in Amherst soon.
