Fiction writer Amity Gaige visits the Philadelphia Alumni Writers House on Thursday, Feb. 26, at 8 p.m., to discuss her work and the future of fiction writing.

The author of the acclaimed novel O My Darling, Gaige was chosen by the

National Book Foundation for its “5 Under 35” program, recognizing the achievements of five first-time fiction writers each year.

Her second novel, The Folded World, published in 2007, was named ForeWord Book of the Year, best book of fiction in the Independent

Publisher Book Awards and one of the best books of the year by the Chicago Tribune.

Gaige is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship, a McDowell Colony Fellowship and a Baltic Writing Residency Fellowship.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
