The Great Junot "Pierrot" Díaz Stops By For A Chat.

For this bookish immigrant kid, meeting Junot Diaz was a dream come true. Before reading and signing for hundreds of fans who packed the Great Shepard Hall, he spoke with MA and MFA students in a small private conference. About two dozen of us got a rare chance to chat face to face with the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Drown, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and This Is How You Lose Her and ask him about language, craft and emerging trends in genre. His foremost concern: the culture of reading increasingly on the decline.

The public appearance and Q&A at Shepard Hall were recorded and I will upload the video as soon as it becomes available. Meanwhile, check out more photos of Junot in full swag.
