Bloomfield College will welcome Joyce Carol Oates, D.F.A. (hon. '10) to campus on Monday, November 6, at 6:00 p.m. in the Robert V. Van Fossan Theatre.
Joyce Carol Oates is a recipient of the National Medal of Humanities, the National Book Critics Circle Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Book Award, and the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction, and has been several times nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
She has written some of the most enduring fiction of our time, including the national bestsellers We Were the Mulvaneys, Blonde, which was nominated for the National Book Award, and the New York Times bestseller The Falls, which won the 2005 Prix Femina. Her most recent novel is A Book of American Martyrs (2017).
She is the Roger S. Berlind Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University and has been a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters since 1978.
Dr. Angela Conrad, Professor of English and Women's Studies at the College, will act as program moderator during this intimate discussion with Oates, an honorary degree recipient and dear friend of Bloomfield College.
All are welcome to attend this free event. To register, kindly respond to Jackie Bartley, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 973-748-9000 ext. 1293.
