Annemarie Monahan, who recently published her first novel, Three, will kick off the English Department’s John and Winifred Smith Alumni Writers Series Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Humanities 019.
Her book is a tale of one woman’s three possible lives that Endgame author Derrick Jensen called, “a book of such beauty that it could change the world.”
The writing series is organized by Jordan Smith, the Edward E. Hale Jr. Professor of English, and is named for his parents. Every term, it will host one former student who went on to become a published author. Monahan will be followed by Michael Allen Potter ’94 in the winter. Potter is an award-winning playwright, poet and essayist. Novelist Anne Blankman ’01 will visit campus in the spring.
Other alumni writers who have come to speak about their work over the years include New York Times reporter Neil A. Lewis ’68 and director and screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson ’71.
