Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jennifer Egan will be the featured reader on Friday, Sept. 28 as a part of Westminster School’s “Friday Nights in Gund,” a series of free public readings, lectures and concerts held at Westminster School during the academic year.
Egan is the author of four novels: “The Invisible Circus,” “Look at Me” (which was a finalist for the National Book Award), “The Keep,” and “A Visit from the Goon Squad” (which won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2011). Egan has also published a book of short stories, “Emerald City,” and her nonfiction appears frequently in the New York Times Magazine.
Friday night readings at Westminster are in their fourth year, featuring student and faculty writers, as well as guest novelists, poets and nonfiction writers. Molly Mullen, a senior from East Granby, Conn., who won the school’s Brian Ford Writing Prize, will be the first reader of the evening.
The reading will begin at 7 p.m. in the Gund Reading Room of the school’s Armour Academic Center. The school is located at 995 Hopmeadow St. in Simsbury. Refreshments are served after the reading and ample parking will be available in the parking lot adjacent to the Armour Academic Center.
