  • Central Keynote: Jane Smiley - "The Novelist is the Tortoise, Not the Hare"--How Patience, Persistence, and Curiosity Pay Off.

"The Novelist is the Tortoise, Not the Hare"--How Patience, Persistence, and Curiosity Pay Off.

Jane will speak about the idiosyncratic pleasures of the novel as a form for the reader and also for the writer--every novel is different, every novel is complex, every novel is full of pleasures that are both large and minute. The take-away is that pleasure is our goal as readers and also as writers.
