Book Talk with Jennifer Acker

April 16, 2019 - 4:30 pm

Lauren Groff has said of Jennifer Acker's forthcoming book, "The Limits of the World is such a smart, compassionate and elegant novel, so deeply invested in morality and the subtleties of families, cultures, and continents, that it feels delicious and exciting to recall that this is [her] debut."

Acker is founder and editor-in-chief of The Common. Her short stories, essays, translations and reviews have appeared in Literary Hub, The Washington Post, n+1, Guernica and Ploughshares, among other places. Her essay-length memoir is forthcoming as a Kindle Single from Amazon Original Stories in 2019.

This book talk is co-sponsored by the Creative Writing Center and Center for Humanistic Inquiry.
