The President’s Reading Series Presents: Jesmyn Ward

Johns Hopkins University

Join us at the Mudd Auditorium at Johns Hopkins for the latest installment in the President’s Reading Series featuring Jesmyn Ward.

MacArthur Genius and two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward has been hailed as the standout writer of her generation, proving her “fearless and toughly lyrical” voice in novels, memoir, and nonfiction. Betsy Burton of the American Booksellers Association has called her “the new Toni Morrison.” In 2017, she became the first woman and the first person of color to win two National Book Awards for Fiction—joining the ranks of William Faulkner, Saul Bellow, John Cheever, Philip Roth, and John Updike.
