How Writers Read

Faculty members from University of Chicago's Creative Writing program choose a piece of writing that has been important to them, read an excerpt, and talk about it from a writer's perspective. How does this differ from a scholar's perspective, or that of a recreational reader? Listen to Jennifer Scappettone, poet, scholar and award-winning translator; Vu Tran, novelist and short story writer; and Peter O'Leary, poet and scholar, discuss this question and whatever arises in a presentation chaired by John Wilkinson, chair of the Committee on Creative Writing.
