Bexley Public Library invites you to join us on April 23 at Capital University’s Mees Hall to hear Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford. In this special evening event, Richard Ford will discuss his life and career followed by an onstage conversation with Pulitzer Prize finalist Lee Martin.
Writing since the 1970s, Mr. Ford is recognized as one of America’s greatest living authors. His novel, The Sportswriter, was named by Time Magazine as one of the best 100 books written in English since the magazine’s inception. He won the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Prize for his novel Independence Day, the first novel to ever win both prizes, and he was also named a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Let Me Be Frank With You. His most recent book, Between Them, is a beautiful and stirring memoir of his parents. And an eagerly anticipated film adaptation of Ford’s novel Wildlife, directed by Paul Dano and starring Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal, released in October 2018 to critical acclaim.
