The Department of English in the College of Arts and Sciences presents the Raymond Carver Reading Series.
Kirstin Valdez Quade is the author of Night at the Fiestas, which won the John Leonard Prize from the National Book Critics Circle, the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a “5 Under 35” award from the National Book Foundation, and was a finalist for the New York Public Library Young Lions Award. It was a New York Times Notable Book and was named a best book of 2015 by the San Francisco Chronicle and the American Library Association. She is the recipient of the John Guare Writer’s Fund Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome, a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer’s Award, and a Wallace Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Best American Short Stories, The O. Henry Prize Stories, The New York Times, and elsewhere. Her first novel, The Five Wounds, will be published in April 2021. Before joining the faculty at Princeton, she taught at Stanford University and the University of Michigan.
Normally these readings take place in Gifford Auditorium on Syracuse University’s main campus and are open to the public, but because of the global-health situation the Spring 2021 Reading Series will be conducted virtually. If you are interested in a Zoom invitation to a particular reading, please contact Sarah Harwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
