Joyce Carol Oates

“First, you hope for an eventful life. Then, you hope for an uneventful life.” Joyce Carol Oates.

I think it may be too late for that.

A towering bastion of the American literary scene, Joyce Carol Oates has already had an eventful life. She had written more than 50 novels, hundreds of short stories, play, memoirs and other non-fiction pieces. She has been heaped with acclaim of all sorts.

She’s about to release a new novel, The Accursed. A work of gothic horror and psychological insight, this historical novel set in Princeton at the turn of the twentieth century is peopled by the famous and the cursed.

She will speaking at Kepler’s in Menlo Park on Wednesday, March 6th at 7:30pm.
