"Writing of this quality comes from a commitment to listening, from a perfect attunement to the human condition, from an attention to reality so exact that it goes beyond a skill and becomes a virtue." – Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall

A Pulitzer Prize-winning author and New York Times Best Seller List mainstay, Elizabeth Strout captivates audiences with her finely drawn characters, incisive prose and her powerful ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Strout's lauded collection of short stories Olive Kitteridge was adapted into an HBO miniseries starring Frances McDormand, and Robert Redford is now adapting her novel The Burgess Boys into an HBO miniseries. Her latest bestselling work of fiction, "My Name Is Lucy Barton – like all of Strout’s fiction – is more complex than it first appears, and all the more emotionally persuasive for it" (San Francisco Chronicle).

Presented in part by an Anonymous patron

Speaking with Pico Series Sponsors: Martha Gabbert, Dori Pierson Carter & Chris Carter, and Laura Shelburne & Kevin O’Connor
