NYC-based author Kathleen Hill will discuss Who Occupies This House (2010), a New York Times Editors’ Choice. The novel tells of four generations of an Irish-American family that has lived in the same house for a century. She will also read from her current book project, on the Brontës’ Irish connections. Hill teaches in the MFA program at Sarah Lawrence College. Her first novel ,Still Waters in Niger, was named a notable book by the New York Times, and was nominated for the Dublin IMPAC Award. The French translation, Eaux Tranquilles, was short-listed for the Prix Femina Étranger. Her stories have appeared in Best American Short Stories, Pushcart Prize XXV and The Pushcart Book of Short Stories. A short piece, “Forgiveness,” was recently included in Best Spiritual Writing, 2013.
