Join the Whiting Foundation for readings in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and drama by the ten talented winners of the 2019 Whiting Awards! The writers will be introduced by Alexander Chee, Whiting 2003 fiction winner and author of How to Write an Autobiographical Novel. Wine and cheese will be served throughout the evening.
The Whiting Foundation provides support for writers and scholars who astonish us by expanding the boundaries of art and understanding. Since 1985, the Foundation has supported creative writing through the Whiting Awards, given annually to ten emerging writers in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama. The awards are based on early accomplishment and the promise of great work to come.
