Eat, Drink & Be Literary: Maggie Nelson


On March 23, genre-defying writer and 2016 MacArthur fellow Maggie Nelson came to BAMcafé as part of the second installation of this season’s Eat, Drink & Be Literary series. Nelson works at the nexus of memoir, theory, poetry, and autobiography. She is the author of The New York Times bestselling book The Argonauts, which won the 2016 National Book Critics Circle Award, and eight other books, including The Art of Cruelty: A ReckoningBluetsThe Red Parts: Autobiography of a Trial, and Jane: A Murder. Following a reading from The Argonauts, Nelson spoke with Lorin Stein, editor of The Paris Review, about the book and the process, ethics and considerations that come with writing from lived experience.
