Living Writers: Geraldine Brooks

Join Living Writers for "The Art of the Historical Novel: Making Fiction from Fact," a talk by Geraldine Brooks, author of Year of Wonders. This virtual event is free and open to the public. It begins at 4:45 p.m. Register via Zoom here.

Born and raised in Australia, Geraldine Brooks had a distinguished career as a foreign correspondent before turning, with Year of Wonders, to fiction-writing. The novel appeared in the summer of 2001, weeks before 9/11. Her second novel, March, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2006. Her other works include The Secret Chord, Caleb’s Crossing, People of the Book, Nine Parts of Desire, Foreign Correspondence, and The Idea of Home.

A signature program of Colgate University since 1980, Living Writers is a master class in how works of literature come to be. It’s free, and anyone can join: alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, friends of the University. The only prerequisite is a passion for reading.
