"The new spring 2013 Visiting Writers Series was a profound pleasure to put together-so many interesting, talented authors!-from first book writers like the memoirist Christa Parravani and New York historian Marguerite Holloway, through to well-established novelists like Marilynne Robinson, Chris Bohjalian, and James Salter, we're once more able to present the best in contemporary literature. This is one of our strongest line-ups in recent years," said Institute Director Donald Faulkner.
The season will open with the annual Burian Lecture delivered by Tony-nominated actor Colman Domingo, a rising star of the American stage, a "blazingly charismatic performer" (New York Times), and a playwright whose work has been called, "Wicked, tender, outrageous and profound" (Newsday).
"Our re-energized film series continues its year-long collaboration with the School of Criminal Justice, and also with film critic J. Hoberman, who has acted as guest curator in the selection process," said Faulkner.
