We are very pleased to announce that author Alice Lichtenstein will be attending our Author Panel on Saturday November 16!
Alice Lichtenstein graduated from Brown University and received her MFA from Boston University where she was named the BU Fellow in Fiction. She has received a New York Foundation of the Arts Grant in Fiction and has twice been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony.
Her first novel, The Genius of the World (Zoland Books, 2000), a Booksense 76 selection in paperback fiction, received favorable reviews, most notably in The New York Times Book Review and on National Public Radio. Lost (Scribner, 2010) received rave reviews, including: The Boston Globe, The St.-Louis Dispatch, The Buffalo News and Good Housekeeping. People Magazine touted Lost as a “Great Read”; Alan Cheuse, reviewing for NPR’s “All Things Considered,” called Lost, “a novel that delivers much reading pleasure.” Lost appeared in audio-book and e-book formats and was translated into Chinese among several other languages. In 2011, Lost was a long-list Finalist for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
The Crime of Being, Alice’s third novel, is forthcoming from Upper Hand Press in November, 2019. Pre-publication reviews have called The Crime of Being, “a story for our divided times.”
In 2012, Lichtenstein received the Barbara Deming Memorial Grant Award for Fiction based on a submission from The Crime of Being.
Additionally, Lichtenstein’s short stories have appeared in several literary journals, including: Revision (Narrative Magazine Winter 2018 Story Finalist and “Story of the Week”); Dead Friends, Post Road (Winter, 2010) and White Ladies, Short Story (Spring, 2010). The above stories were nominated for Pushcart Prize Awards.
Alice lives in Oneonta, New York, where she teaches fiction-writing at Hartwick College, and in Surry, Maine.
The panel on the 16th will run from 1-3pm and will include a book sale and book signing, so you can do some holiday shopping that supports our local artists!
