Acclaimed Author Comes to Johns Hopkins Marilynne Robinson talks “Literature of Social Import”



Instead of a thirsty Thursday, how about an erudite evening? If you want to spend your evening listening to great literature (and maybe feeling slightly superior to those not present), then you’re in luck!

The President’s Reading Series at Johns Hopkins will welcome Marilynne Robinson Thursday evening as a part of its series of writing seminars that are free and open to the public.

It’s a big get. Robinson has won just about every award you can win for writing—a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, multiple National Book Critics Circle Awards, the Orange Prize, the list goes on. Honestly, it’s probably easier to list the awards she hasn’t won.

The author of Gilead, Home, and Lila, among others, Robinson will be reading from her works, with a reception and book-signing to follow.

So, literary geeks of Baltimore, now’s your chance to meet and fangirl and fanboy out to one of your favorite authors in person.

The event will be 6:30 p.m. at Hodson Hall, room 110. You can learn more here.
