Few writers can enter their characters so completely or evoke their lives as viscerally as Andre Dubus III, whether imagining Massoud Behrani and Kathy Nicolo, the tragic protagonists of his breakthrough novel House of Sand and Fog, or depicting the real-life characters that shaped his early life in the gripping memoir Townie. In this not-to-be-missed lecture, Dubus will reveal his secrets for building characters in literary fiction and infusing them with all the complexity, nuance, and humanity that readers have come to cherish from his books.

After the lecture, Dubus will be interviewed on stage by the award-winning novelist Jennifer Haigh, author of six books including Heat & Light and Faith.
