Join us for this extraordinary opportunity to discuss and learn about the craft of writing from one of the greatest writers of our generation. Distinctive for his boundless ambition and extraordinary output—over twenty books to date, including the seven-volume, 3,352-page, Rising Up and Rising Down series—Vollmann fully inhabits two often polarized literary worlds. “One of the most unnerving aspects [of Vollmann’s work] …. is his combination of journalistic immediacy with profound moral inquiry,” says Chicago Tribune. That duality has earned him comparisons to Thomas Pynchon.
