Cohen will moderate an evening reading at the Annual Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference
Monday, February 18, 2013
The gathering is the largest literary conference in North America and is expected to attract over 11,000 attendees. The conference brings together two Nobel Laureates, twelve Pulitzer Prize-winning writers, two U.S. Poets Laureate, eight National Book Award winners, and four recipients of the National Book Critics Circle Award, among hundreds of other readers, speakers, and panelists.
During the conference, Cohen will be introduced by Steven Cramer, director of Lesley’s MFA in Creative Writing Program.
“I’m delighted to have the chance to sing Leah’s praises in front of a few thousand people, and of course to share a few words about the Lesley MFA Program in Creative Writing,” said Cramer.
Cohen will moderate a reading and conversation with Bloom, a New York Times bestselling novelist, and Russo, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. The conversation, sponsored by the Lesley University MFA in Creative Writing Program, will be held at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 8. It is free and open to the public.
