Meg Wolitzer: Author in Residence

Meg Wolitzer is the New York Times–bestselling author of The Interestings, The Uncoupling, The Ten-Year Nap, The Position, The Wife, and Sleepwalking. Her most recent book, The Female Persuasion, was described by Bustle as “a powerful coming-of-age story that looks at ambition, friendship, identity, desire, and power from the much-needed female lens.” Meg lives in New York City and is visiting Newfoundland as part of the Writers at Woody Point festival.

Following her engagement at Woody Point, Meg will be in residence at Fogo Island Inn from August 18-20, 2019, to reflect, connect with guests, and explore the nature and culture of this island off an island. While Summer on Fogo Island invites ample opportunities for active excursions on land and on the water, the Inn and the surrounding landscape are also ideal for quiet moments of reading, writing, and reflection. Any rock is a reading rock if one just asks it to be.

In addition to the many conversations bound to spring up over cocktails and bonfires, Meg will do a reading in the Inn’s Gathering Hall as part of her residency.
