Jamaica Kincaid
Lynn Hauser and Neil Ross Program

Born in Antigua, Jamaica Kincaid arrived in the United States as a seventeen-year-old au pair. Working her way through college, she eventually became a staff writer at the New Yorker and one of our most renowned novelists. Her Caribbean birthplace continues to inspire her fiction, from Annie John and Lucy to Mr. Potter and See Now Then. Join her for a wide-ranging conversation with CHF Emeritus Artistic Director Lawrence Weschler.

This program is generously underwritten by Lynn Hauser and Neil Ross.
