Sigrid Nunez (’16) wins National Book Award

SigridNunez2So proud to learn that alumna Sigrid Nunez (’16) won the 2018 National Book Award for her novel, The Friend. She wrote the last chapter of the book during her summer residency in 2016. (Seen in the photo above.)

 

The National Book Award judges called The Friend an “exquisitely written and deeply humane exploration of grief, literature and memory.” You can also read Dwight Garner’s review in The New York Times from February here.

Congratulations, Sigrid!
