Q&A with Alice Walker
The Eichner Women Writer Series invites you to join us for our annual event. This year, we welcome Alice Walker, an internationally celebrated writer, poet and activist whose books include seven novels, four collections of short stories, four children’s books, and volumes of essays and poetry.
Her work has been translated into more than two dozen languages, and her books have sold more than fifteen million copies. In addition to winning the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction in 1983 and the National Book Award, Walker was honored as one of the inaugural inductees into the California Hall of Fame in 2006. Her novel The Color Purple was made into a film and a Broadway musical.
Her upcoming nonfiction work, Gathering Blossoms Under Fire: The Journals of Alice Walker, will be a book of lasting significance—tracing her development as an artist, human rights activist and intellectual.
