Annual Spring Literary Luncheon - Laura


New York Times Best Selling Author

Laura van den Berg's debut novel, Find Me, is a gripping, imaginative, darkly funny tale of a young woman's struggles to find her place in the world. It was featured in Time Out New York and NPR's "Best Books of 2015," long-listed for the International Dylan Thomas Prize and a WH Smith Fresh Talent selection in the United Kingdom.

She is also the author of two short story collections: What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us and The Isle of Youth, both finalists for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award. Her honors include the Bard Fiction Prize, the Rosenthal Family Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Pushcart Prize, an O. Henry Award, and fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and the Civitella Ranieri Foundation. 

Laura lives in Cambridge, MA with her husband and dog. She is a Briggs-Copeland Lecturer in Fiction at Harvard University and teaches in the M.F.A. Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.
