Dana Spiotta

Dana Spiotta is the author of four novels: Innocents and Others, published by Scribner in 2016; Stone Arabia (2011), a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist in fiction; Eat the Document (2006), a finalist for the National Book Award and a recipient of the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters; and Lightning Field (2001). She was a Guggenheim Fellow, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow and won the 2008-9 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome. The Washington Post calls Innocents and Others, “ ... brilliant and immensely clever. While the novel’s form is promiscuous, its moral dimensions feel vast. Toward the end, Meadow considers how to create a ‘glimpse of the sublime.’ Considering the limits of her medium, she asks herself, ‘Can an image convey something unnamable, impossible, invisible?’ The quiet miracle of this novel is that it does just that.” Spiotta teaches in the Syracuse University MFA program. 

Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
