A Conversation with Anna Quindlen
A Conversation with Anna Quindlen, hosted by bestselling author, Connie Schultz
Pulitzer Prize-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author, Anna Quindlen, returns to Thurber House for a special evening of conversation, hosted by her longtime friend, Pulitzer Prize-winner, bestselling author, and previous Thurber House Literary Picnic featured guest, Connie Schultz.
Quindlen is the author of five previous novels including Rise and Shine and Blessings, and seven books of nonfiction including A Short Guide to a Happy Life and Good Dog. Stay. Her New York Times column “Public and Private” won the Pulitzer Prize in 1992. From 2000-2009, she wrote the “Last Word” column for Newsweek. She will talk about her latest novel, Every Last One, an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family, and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions. It is a mesmerizing story about facing every last one of the things we fear most, about finding ways to navigate a road we never intended to travel, to live a life we never dreamed we’d have to live but must be brave enough to try.
A columnist for The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Connie Schultz won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for commentary. She has won numerous other awards including the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Social Justice Reporting, the Scripps Howard National Journalism Award for commentary, and Batten Medal. She is the author of Life Happens: And Other Unavoidable Truths, and And His Lovely Wife: A Campaign Memoir from the Woman Beside the Man, which highlights the time she spent campaigning with her husband, U.S Senator Sherrod Brown.
