Sue Miller to Speak About Life as a Writer

1NORTHAMPTON, Mass.— Acclaimed novelist Sue Miller will speak about life as a writer and respond to audience questions at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21, in the Neilson Library Browsing Room. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Smith College Libraries and is free and open to the public.

Miller, who is known as a chronicler of family, marriage and friendship, is the author of nine novels as well as a collection of short stories and a memoir about her father and his death from Alzheimer’s disease.

Her latest title, “The Lake Shore Limited,” published this year, follows the popular “The Senator’s Wife” and “While I was Gone,” which was an Oprah’s Book Club selection.

Miller’s visit to campus marks a return for the writer. She taught advanced-level creative writing at Smith as the Elizabeth Drew Professor of English Language and Literature for two years, from 2008-10.

A recipient of Guggenheim and Bunting fellowships, Miller has also taught at Tufts University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston University and Amherst College.
