Novelist Colson Whitehead is the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, a Whiting Writers Award and a fellowship at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. His wonderfully witty, inventive novels include Sag Harbor, Apex Hides the Hurt, John Henry Days and The Intuitionist; their topics range from African American teenagers summering in the Hamptons to the racial politics and philosophical dilemmas of elevator inspections. His collection of essays, The Colossus of New York, is about his hometown. The lecture is free and open to the public.
