Novelist Ann Patchett To Visit UW

Heidi Ross

Bestselling novelist Ann Patchett will speak at the University of Wyoming Tuesday, April 22. The free talk includes a Q & A, followed by a book signing.  In addition to the talk, she will meet privately with UW students, including MFA candidates in the creative writing program.

Patchett says the talk she gives depends on the audience. “Talks change every night. Giving a talk is bizarrely like standup. You really are playing off the energy of the audience and you really know when you're succeeding and failing, and you change it all the time.”

Her novels include “The Patron Saint of Liars,” “Bel Canto” and “State of Wonder.” She’s currently editing a collection of essays related to photographs. Tuesday’s talk starts at 1:30 pm in the UW College of Education auditorium.

Rebecca's current book project is a collection of essays about the city of Detroit. In her free time, Rebecca enjoys painting, photography and antiquing.
