Yiyun Li | Master Class

Brooklyn, NY Saturday, October 12

What compels us to write about ourselves? What drives us to read about the lives of others? In this Master Class we will examine different approaches to writing about the people, places, and events that have made us who and how we are; and gather assets of writerly tools to write about our experiences and our perceptions of the world around us.

Yiyun Li‘s books include Where Reasons End; Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life; the novels Kinder Than Solitude and The Vagrants; and the story collections Gold Boy, Emerald Girl, and A Thousand Years of Good Prayers (all Random House). She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the the PEN/Hemingway Award, the Whiting Award, and a MacArthur Fellowship; and a professor of creative writing at Princeton University.
