FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 7 p.m.: The Writers Studio Celebrates The Kenyon Review

The Strand Bookstore, 828 Broadway at East 12th Street, NYC

Every year The Writers Studio pays homage to a literary journal supporting exciting, new writing. This spring, we will celebrate The Kenyon Review, which was founded by critic John Crowe Ransom back in 1939, and which has published early works by generations of important writers such as Robert Penn Warren, Flannery O’Connor, Thomas Pynchon, and Maya Angelou. The line-up will include novelists Lily Tuck (The News from Paraguay, The Double Life of Liliane), Laura van den Berg (The Isle of Youth, Find Me), and Dan Torday (The Last Flight of Poxl West), and poets Meghan O’Rourke (Half Life, The Long Goodbye), Kimiko Hahn (The Unbearable Hart, Brain Fever), and Kenyon Review Poetry Editor David Baker (Changeable Thunder, Never-Ending Birds).
