Boston College’s Lowell Humanities Series hosts a number of appearances— all free of charge and open to the public— by renowned writers and others during the academic year.
Karen Russell, author of the celebrated debut novel Swamplandia! and the prize-winning story collection St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised By Wolves, will appear at Boston College on February 6, 2013 at 7pm, according to a press release.
Rusell has been featured in The New Yorker’s debut fiction issue and its "20 Under 40" list. She was chosen as one of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists and in 2009 received the 5 Under 35 award from the National Book Foundation. Three of her short stories have been selected for the Best American Short Stories volumes. She is currently writer-in-residence at Bard College. Her new collection of stories will be published this month.
