Susan Choi: Stephen King Lecture Series

Larry D. Moore

Thursday, November 25, 2021

National Book Award-winning novelist Susan Choi has made a career of challenging conventional perspectives through her extraordinary body of fiction. In this talk and reading, part of the Stephen E. King Chair lecture series, Choi discusses how her fiction often evolves from her own life circumstances into "worst case scenario" versions of it; and how her real-life rage inspired the formal disruptions that culminated in her award-winning novel Trust Exercise.

This talk was recorded on October 21, 2021 at Minsky Recital Hall on the UMaine campus in Orono.
