Bonnie Nadzam’s short stories, poetry and essays have made their way into all manner of popular magazines and scholarly journals, but it’s her work as a novelist that has truly put her on the map and on the road to Spokane for a reading. Her debut novel Lamb won the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize and was made into a feature film that debuted at SXSW in 2015. Her follow-up, Lions, arrived in 2016 and was a finalist for the PEN USA Literary Award for fiction. Nadzam’s latest novel, 31, is coming soon, and she’ll be in town as part of Eastern Washington University’s Visiting Writer Series where, if you’re nice, maybe she’ll offer a sneak peek.
