Karen Russell

Karen Russell (Weds. Oct. 14th, 2015) read from her recent short-story collection, Vampires in the Lemon Grove (Knopf Doubleday, 2014). As Michiko Kakutani, New York Times critic, writes, “Russell deftly combines elements of the weird and supernatural with acute psychological realism; elements of the gothic with dry, contemporary humor.” Her work has been likened to George Saunders, Saki, Stephen King, Carson McCullers and Joy Williams. Russell, a native of Miami, won the 2012 National Magazine Award for fiction, and her first novel, Swamplandia! (2011), was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. She is a graduate of the Columbia MFA program, a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, and a 2012 Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin. She lives in Oregon.
