Thursday: See Jonathan Safran Foer Interview Zadie Smith

A friend passes on information:

Acclaimed British writer Zadie Smith's first book, White Teeth, won a number of awards, including the Guardian First Book Award and the Whitbread First Novel Award. Smith's second novel, The Autograph Man, won the 2003 Jewish Quarterly Literary Prize for Fiction. On Beauty was published in 2005, and won the 2006 Orange Prize for Fiction.

Jonathan Safran Foer is the best-selling author of Everything Is Illuminated, which won numerous awards, including the Koret Award for best work of Jewish fiction of the decade, and, like White Teeth, the Guardian First Book Award. His second novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, was a finalist for the IMPAC Prize. Foer joined the NYU Creative Writing Program faculty in 2008, and lives in Brooklyn,
New York.

Date: Thursday, April 30th, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Tishman Auditorium, Vanderbilt Hall, 40 Washington Square South


Does your friend know if I can just walk into Vanderbilt Hall?

My understanding is that the event is free, and that there is no RSVP.

I wish I could be there, but living in Syracuse, I cannot (though I was in NYC last week). I loved White Teeth.

All of the NYU creative writing department’s events are open to the public, as far as I know. Just tell the security people that you’re going to the reading and they should let you in. I posted a brief video of this event on my blog, if anyone wants to see what they missed.
