OMAA continues its exploration of the union between arts and letters with programs by notable authors and artists.
Wally Lamb is a New York Times best–selling author known for his widely popular novels She’s Come Undone, a finalist for the 1992 Los Angeles Book Awards’ Art Seidenbaum Prize for first fiction, and I Know This Much is True. During the program, Lamb will read excerpts from I Know This Much is True as well as a novel in progress.
Lamb’s work incudes editing Couldn’t Keep It to Myself and I’ll Fly Away, essays from students in his writing workshop at York Correctional Institution, a women’s prison in Connecticut. Former director of the University of Connecticut’s creative writing program, Lamb is also a sought-after speaker and has spoken at universities and colleges, libraries, arts and lecture venues, and literary festivals across the country.
