Dazzling. Gorgeous. Sharp and smart. The writing of Rachel Kushner, author of the acclaimed novels Telex from Cuba and The Flamethrowers, is all of these things and more. The National Book Award­–nominee (twice!) is back with The Mars Room, bringing readers inside a Central Valley prison alongside a two-consecutive-life-sentenced heroine named Romy Hall. This year’s Mary Routt Chair in Creative Writing, Kushner will preview her new work in a reading and conversation.


This program is presented in partnership with the Mary Routt Chair in Writing.
