Department of English to host conversation with author Rebecca Makkai, March 14  

The Department of English will host acclaimed author Rebecca Makkai for a conversation about her most recent novel, The Great Believers. The virtual event will take place this Sunday, March 14 at 7 p.m.    

The novel won several significant prizes and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. This conversation will be a great event not only for those who have read the novel but also for people who love books, writing and the kind of sharp observational wit that defines Makkai and her fiction.

All are welcome. Contact Leah Flack with questions. 

This event is hosted by the Department of English, the Marquette Literary Community and The Great Believers Book Club.
