William Kennedy to Read at Bard

Monday, October 4 @ 6:30 p.m.
Rural Intelligence Arts
“What James Joyce did for Dublin and Saul Bellow did for Chicago, William Kennedy has done for Albany, New York,” wrote critic James Atlas in Vogue. Kennedy is the author of eight novels, including Legs and Ironweed, which won the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction; three books of nonfiction; two screenplays; stage plays; essays; and two children’s books. He is a professor of English at SUNY Albany and founder and executive director of the New York State Writers Institute. Kennedy will be introduced by novelist and Bard literature professor Bradford Morrow.  Kennedy’s reading, part of Morrow’s Innovative Contemporary Fiction course, is open to the public and free.  It will be followed by an 8 p.m. screening of the film Ironweed, based on Kennedy’s Pulitzer Prize–winning novel and starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.
