The Cabin Readings and Conversations: George Saunders

Wednesday, March 2


In his convocation speech to the 2013 graduating class at Syracuse University, author George Saunders said among his regrets were "failures of kindness"—instances in which he could have done more for someone in need.

Saunders has written for GQ, The New Yorker and Harper's, and has been a finalist for the National Book Award for In Persuasion Nation. He's also a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and was No. 54 on "The 2013 Time 100," the magazine's annual list of influential people, so expect sagacious wit and good ideas when he speaks at the Egyptian Theatre Wednesday, March 2 as part of The Cabin's Readings and Conversations series.
