The Writing Center- CE
Join us for our annual Writers' Conference
Welcome to The Writing Center-CE
If fall 2012 at the Hunter Writing Center was amazing, spring will be the next superlative up. Our lead-off speaker for our Best Selling Author Series, A.M Homes is an extraordinary writer, and the rest of the line-up is equally exciting. You will probably see Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher in the first blockbuster film based upon Lee Child's novel; we are lucky enough to have Lee Child speaking for us in March. In April we will host Yiyun Li, a MacArthur Fellow who was named by the New Yorker as one of the top 20 writers under 40 in the country. Steve Berry, the mega-selling suspense writer will conclude our series in May. This spring we will again have our Great Thinker Series and here superlatives may not even be enough. Gloria Steinem is a seminal thinker and pioneer in modern feminism. Lewis Lapham is the founder of Lapham's Quarterly and was the brilliant editor of Harper's magazine for years. Edward Witten is one of the leading string theorists in the world, a mathematical physicist who along with Alan Guth, another of our speakers, is one of the nine scientists recently awarded $3 million for the new Fundamental Physics Prize. Finally, there is Sheldon Glashow from Boston University who is a recipient of the Nobel Prize in physics. We are thrilled to offer such a distinguished group of speakers-and for free. Word to the wise: reserve your seats early.
