Yaddo Presents: Andrea Barrett in Conversation with Peter Cameron

In concert with Northshire Bookstore, we are delighted to present Peter Cameron in conversation with Andrea Barrett in celebration of her latest book, Natural History, a story collection that “depicts the natural world and the human heart with wonder, tenderness, and deep understanding” (Kirkus Reviews).

Andrea Barrett is the author of ten works of fiction, including her latest, Natural History, as well as the National Book Award–winning Ship Fever and Pulitzer Prize finalist Servants of the Map. She is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and an NEA Fellowship, as well as a finalist for the Story Prize and a recipient of the Rea Award for the Short Story. Having lived in Rochester, New York, and western Massachusetts, Barrett now resides in the Adirondacks.

Peter Cameron is the author of nine works of fiction including the story collections One Way or Another and Far-Flung, as well as the novels Leap Year, The Weekend, Andorra, The City of Your Final Destination, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You, Coral Glynn, and his latest, What Happens at Night. His work has appeared in The New Yorker and has been adapted to film. Cameron has worked extensively with nonprofit organizations, including The Trust for Public Land and Lambda Legal Defense. He serves on Yaddo’s Board and divides his time between New York City and Sandgate, Vermont.

This is a free, public event, and will be held in-person at Northshire Bookstore Saratoga. Andrea Barrett’s Natural History is available for pre-purchase.
