A Conversation with Elizabeth Strout

American writer Elizabeth Strout won a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2009 for what is perhaps her most famous novel “Olive Kitteridge.” The #1 New York Times bestselling author’s most recent work, “Olive, Again,” follows the sometimes heart-wrenching but irresistible life of the unforgettable namesake character. Upon its release, it was named as an Oprah’s Book Club 2019 Pick. 

Strout is no stranger to awards or to the Charlotte community. She was a founding faculty member of the Master of Fine Arts graduate writing program at Queens, where she was teaching when she won the prestigious Pulitzer. In this intimate event, she will be sharing thoughts on her craft, reading from her work and fielding questions from the audience. 

“Strout is a brilliant chronicler of the ambiguity and delicacy of the human condition.” 
– The Guardian
