AWF Winter Words: Tea Obreht in conversation with Seth Fishman
|Email Page||Print Page|
Since the winter of 1998, the Aspen Writers' Foundation has presented Winter Words, an annual author series that elevates the written word off the page and onto the stage. Over the years, dozens of literati - including Pulitzer Prize winners, National Book Award honorees, and bestselling authors - have engaged Aspen audiences after the lifts close during this "Après Ski for the Mind" program. These days, Winter Words keeps the reading world on its toes and audience members are as apt to find on the bill a literary cabaret featuring live music and cutting edge comedy as they are to enjoy a traditional poetry reading followed by a Q&A and book signing. When it comes to Winter Words, inspiring literature - whatever shape it may take - is always on tap
