Event description

Description

Join visiting New Fiction Confab author Thomas Pierce for a one-hour craft talk for teens (grades 7-12) on the art of writing fiction.

ABOUT THOMAS PIERCE: Thomas Pierce’s first novel, The Afterlives, follows a man seeking deep answers to big questions after his near-death experience failed to produce the profound encounter one typically expects. After the publication of Pierce’s debut short story collection, Hall of Small Mammals, Pierce received the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 Award in 2016. His stories have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Oxford American, and elsewhere. He lives in Virginia with his wife and daughters.

Pierce will also make an appearance this same day for a series of panel discussions (for adults) with all New Fiction Confab authors at the Central Library beginning at 2:00pm. To learn more about the New Fiction Confab, click here.
