In concert with Northshire Bookstore, Yaddo is pleased to present one of our most revered writers—#YaddoArtist Lorrie Moore—in celebration of her new book, "See What Can Be Done: Essays, Criticism, and Commentary." Culled from decades of her work, this collection highlights exemplary magazine and newspaper pieces on literature, culture and art. Moore’s riffs on writing—“it is lonely and waited for, brilliant and pure and frightened, a marriage of birds, a conversation of the blind”—offer insight into her singular vision and voice, which fans will recognize from her acclaimed story collections, "Birds of America," "Like Life," and "Bark." Harper’s Magazine describes her intellectual influence as paramount to our generation: “Fifty years from now, it may well turn out that the work of very few American writers has as much to say about what it means to be alive in our time as that of Lorrie Moore.”
Tickets are $5, with proceeds benefiting Yaddo's mission to nurture the creative process by providing an opportunity for artists to work without interruption in a supportive environment. Seating is limited. Purchase tickets at Northshire Bookstore Saratoga early!
