The New York State Writers Institute announced its schedule of visiting readers for the spring 2014, highlighted by novelists E.L. Doctorow and Walter Mosley, short story writer Lydia Davis and playwright Christopher Durang. In addition, the Institute will host a special day-long celebration of the work of poet, translator, and former UAlbany professor Pierre Joris.
“The Spring 2014 Visiting Writers Series features old friends and new faces, always a good mix for literary events,” said Institute director Donald Faulkner.
All events are open to the public and free of charge except for the American Place Theatre’s one-man production of “Black Boy.”
