An Evening of New Nonfiction

An Evening of New Nonfiction with Wayne Koestenbaum, Sarah Thornton and David L. Ulin

"Wayne Koestenbaum is one of the most original and relentlessly obsessed cultural spies writing today." John Waters

This stimulating program draws together three of the most versatile and dynamic writers working in the field of nonfiction today. In addition to his books of poetry and fiction, Wayne Koestenbaum has published five lavishly praised books of nonfiction, including The Queen's Throat, a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award, and the new Hotel Theory--a wildly original hybrid of fiction and nonfiction that unfolds in parallel columns on each page. Sarah Thornton's Seven Days in the Art World has been acclaimed by The Sunday Times as "the best book yet written about the modern-art boom... a vivid Robert Altmanesque panorama." The New Yorker contributor had previously penned Club Cultures: Music, Media and Subcultural Capital. David L. Ulin, book editor of the Los Angeles Times, is the author of The Myth of Solid Ground: Earthquakes, Prediction, and the Fault Line Between Reason and Faith, selected as a Best Book of 2004 by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Chicago Tribune. He teaches at CalArts.

Organized by Maggie Nelson of the CalArts MFA Writing Program.
