Yesterday The PITT News published a brief interview with writer Lydia Davis.  The article discusses her views on authenticity in writing and what it means to be avant-garde. Davis is giving a reading as part of the PITT Contemporary Writers Series tonight, Thursday, April 7th @ 8:30 p.m. in Frick Fine Arts Auditorium on Pitt’s Campus. The event is free and open to the public. Please visit the following link to see the full interview!

“You always start out writing in very private situations;. Especially when you’re a young writer, very few people care all that much what you do. And that’s actually a good thing, I think: You write to please yourself. No, I would feel embarrassed if a lot of people were using my work. I guess I’d rather everybody did their own thing, made their own invention.”  – Lydia Davis
