Novelist and short story writer Karen Joy Fowler will close this year’s Jack Ridl Visting Writers Series on Wednesday. The Seattle Times interviewed Fowler during her 2007 visit to the area. When asked about the setting of her debut novel Sarah Canary in the Puget Sound region, Fowler provided insights into the research that is often necessary before one is prepared to write. You’ll find Sarah Canary, and other works by Karen Joy Fowler, shelved adjacent to the Reference Desk on the first floor of Van Wylen Library. Works by all of this year’s visiting writers are there, too. We hope you’ll take a moment to browse the selection and borrow as you wish.
