Novelist Susan Choi will give a free public reading in the Knight Library Browsing Room at 4 pm on Monday, May 14. Choi teaches English at Yale University and is the author of The Foreign Student (1998); American Woman (2003); A Person of Interest (2008); and My Education (2013). American Woman was a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize. Her writing explores themes of identity and the impact of the political sphere upon personal life.
“Choi’s subject is contemporary America as much as it is America’s past. The result is historical fiction with present-day relevance.”
