Serial's Sarah Koenig, Other Literary Heavy-Hitters, To Speak in Cleveland for County Library Writer Series


Serial fans, rejoice: On September 24, podcast co-creators Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder will kick off the Cuyahoga County Library's 2015-2016 William N. Skirball Writers Center Stage Series with a talk at Case Western Reserve University.

Tickets for Koenig and Snyder, and for all the Skirball Writer talks, are $30. (Detailed info here).  

The lineup of literary celebs is one of the strongest in recent memory: After the Serial ladies, British novelist Neil Gaiman will speak in October. New York Times' Bestselling author of Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn, will round out the 2015 trio with a talk in November. 

In 2016, Haitian-American novelist Edwidge Danticat, New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast, and Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and memoirist Rick Bragg will hit the stage.

Thirty bones may seem like a pretty penny to hear a writer speak, but these things are always terrific.
