Keynote: Joyce Carol Oates
October 16, 2010
Joyce Carol Oates?s utterly fearless, disquieting and imaginative writing spans multiple genres and has established her as one of America?s preeminent authors. She is a recipient of the National Book Award for her novel them and the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction and has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize as well as the Nobel Prize. The New York Times, in its review of Sourland, Oates?s latest ?dazzling collection? of stories, calls her ?a dangerous writer in the best sense of the word, one who takes risks almost obsessively, with energy and relish.?
