How does the life add up to the writer? Or to the writing itself? In How to Write an Autobiographical Novel, prize-winning author Alexander Chee (English & Creative Writing) takes measure of some of the most formative experiences in his life and career, including the odd jobs that supported him as he wrote his first novel (Tarot-reading, bookselling, cater-waiting), the death of his father, 9/11, and teaching fiction writing.  Chee will read from the book, and then discuss it in conversation of fellow writer Peter Orner (English & Creative Writing).
