An Evening with Joyce Carol Oates, Monday, April 30th, 7 p.m.

Joyce Carol Oates is a renowned author of more than 70 books, including fiction, poetry, essay and memoir. Her writings are stirring and complex — addressing racism, sexism, alienation, love and morality. Going deep. Skewing our perceptions, seeing from a different angle and challenging both the status quo and conventional wisdom.
