PEN-Faulkner Award-winning author and Writers’ Workshop visiting faculty Kate Christensen will read from her new masterwork of fiction, Welcome Home, Stranger !  “Kate Christensen’s new novel, Welcome Home, Stranger is a revelation, offering characters as real as your family and friends, a rich, vividly drawn setting, grab-you-by-the-throat drama and always, lurking in the shadows, a fierce authorial intelligence. What more could you ask?”—Richard Russo

Kate Christensen is the author of seven novels, most recently The Last Cruise. Her fourth novel, The Great Man, won the 2008 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. She has also published two food-centric memoirs, Blue Plate Special and How to Cook a Moose, which won the 2016 Maine Literary Award for Memoir. Her essays, reviews, and short pieces have appeared in a wide variety of publications and anthologies.  She lives with her husband and their two dogs in Taos, New Mexico.
