The Kratz Center Presents Elizabeth Strout

The Kratz Center for Creative Writing at Goucher College proudly presents Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout for two events on October 17, 2017.

In the afternoon, the author will give a presentation called, "Why You Don't Need To Worry About Plot” in the Soper Room of the Julia Rogers Building at 3:00pm.

In the evening, Ms. Strout will read from and sign copies of her brand new novel, Anything Is Possible, which was written in tandem with her bestseller My Name is Lucy Barton. Anything is Possible draws on the lives of the small-town characters evoked in the discussion between Lucy and her mother. The evening event will begin at 8:00pm in Kraushaar Auditorium.

Born in Portland, Maine, Strout graduated from Bates College with a degree in English in 1977. She received a law degree along with a Certificate in Gerontology from Syracuse University College of Law. Strout has taught creative writing at Manhattan College, The New School, Bard College, Colgate University, and Queens University of Charlotte. She divides her time between Maine and New York City.

Both author events are free and open to the public, but tickets must be reserved for the evening event. For more information, contact the Kratz Center at
