We’re thrilled to announce that acclaimed novelist and short story writer Laura van den Berg will be coming to Unbound in April. In addition to various other things, Laura will be appearing on our panel about Ghost Stories. If you’ve read her wondrous new novel, THE THIRD HOTEL (which was described by the New York Times as an “inscrutable future cult classic”), you’ll understand why.
Laura is the author of two short story collections and two novels. Her honors include the Bard Fiction Prize, the Rosenthal Family Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, an O. Henry Award, and fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and the Civitella Ranieri Foundation. Born and raised in Florida, Laura currently lives in Cambridge, MA, where she is a Briggs-Copeland Lecturer in Fiction at Harvard.
We cannot wait to welcome Laura to Columbia!
