Jesmyn Ward received her MFA from the University of Michigan and was a recipient of a MacArthur «genius grant,» a Stegner Fellowship, a John and Renee Grisham Writers Residency, and the Strauss Living Prize. She is currently an associate professor of creative writing at Tulane University and lives in Mississippi. She is the authors of Where the Line Bleeds and two National Book Award-winning novels Salvage the Bones and Sing Unburied Sing. Her memoir, Men We Reaped, was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and won the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize and the Media for a Just Society Award. The New York Times wrote that Ward is: “An important contemporary voice: a sensitive, lyrical narrator of difficult stories from the land of Faulkner and Welty.”

— Portland Arts & Lectures brings the world’s most celebrated writers, artists, and thinkers to our community.

In addition to live lectures that are also broadcast statewide on The Archive Project on OPB radio, the program connects renowned authors with readers and writers of all ages through classroom visits and writing workshops.
