The Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer Series Presents: Lisa Taddeo

LT HEADSHOTBoston University’s Program in Creative Writing is thrilled to announce that Lisa Taddeo (Fiction ’17) will be the featured reader for this fall’s installation of The Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer Series, which will take place on November 17 at 7:00 PM. Lisa will be reading from her debut novel, Animal, and will then participate in a Q&A session after the reading.

Lisa’s nonfiction book Three Women was a New York Times bestseller and is being adapted for television by Showtime. In a review for The Atlantic, Sophie Gilbert called the book “an astonishing book of literary reportage.” Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert remarked: “I can’t remember the last time a book affected me as profoundly as Three Women.” Reviewers of Animal have praised Lisa’s “empathy and intelligence and remarkable insight” (Jennifer Haigh for The New York Times) and called the book “abrasive and unsparing” (Sandra Newman for The Guardian).

This event is free and open to the public. Those who wish to attend can use this Zoom link.
