Junot Díaz Workshops and Troy Lecture

On Thursday, November 1, Pulitzer Prize recipient and MacArthur Fellow Junot Díaz gave our annual Troy Lecture. Mr. Diaz read from his new work This is How You Lose Her and engaged the audience in a lively question-and-answer session on contemporary events and his philosophy of writing. Mr. Díaz also held special writing workshops attended by our undergraduate majors and students in the MFA program. It was a terrific evening for the entire Five Colleges community.
