Writer Angela Palm
Wednesday, March 29, 7:30 p.m. • University Library Lilly Auditorium

A native of Indiana, Angela Palm is the author of Riverine: A Memoir from Anywhere but Here, published by Graywolf Press in 2016. She owns Ink + Lead Literary Services and is the editor of an anthology of Vermont writers, Please Do Not Remove. Her work has appeared in Paper Darts, Midwestern Gothic, Tampa Review, and elsewhere. She lives in Burlington, Vermont. About Riverine, The Wall Street Journal writes, “[Riverine] beautifully examines the myriad ways nature and nurture mingle and mix to make us who were are as adults. . . . Riverine is a different kind of memoir, one that through a kind of sleight of hand transports readers from the narrative into the world of ideas and back again, with readers scarcely noticing the transitions.”

Lili Wright

Writer Lili Wright
Thursday, April 20, 8:00 p.m. • IUPUI Campus Center 405

Lili Wright is the author of Dancing with the Tiger, a literary thriller set in Mexico, published by Putnam Penguin in 2016. She is also the author of the travel memoir Learning to Float, which The Washington Post named one of its “Best Summer Reads.” Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, Down East, The Cincinnati Review, The Normal School, Cream City Review, and many other publications. She teaches English at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. About Dancing with the Tiger, The New York Times’ Tayari Jones writes, “The chorus of the many voices of Oaxaca—expats, tourists and locals alike—creates a siren song that keeps you turning the pages. This novel has much in common with Anna’s favorite drink, the margarita, said to be the brainchild of an American Mexiphile: It’s salty-sweet, refreshing and more powerful than you think.”
