Two former Cullman Center Fellows, the writers Julie Orringer and Lore Segal, read from and discuss their work.

Lore Segal is a novelist, essayist, translator, and writer of children’s books. Her celebrated works include Other People's Houses, Her First American, and Shakespeare’s Kitchen.  Segal's wickedly funny and timeless novella of the New York literary scene, Lucinella, has just been reissued by Melville House.*

Julie Orringer is the author of the acclaimed story collection How To Breathe Underwater (New York Times Notable Book, 2003).  Her first novel, The Invisible Bridge, will be published by Knopf in May.
