Inside the Writer's Studio with Mary Karr

Listen in to the Writer's Studio, a reading and often rollicking on-stage interview with some of the best writers out there. In October 2011, we had the great fortune to have Mary Karr visit for a weekend's worth of events.

Mary Karr is an award-winning poet and best-selling memoirist. She is the author of Lit, the long-awaited sequel to her critically-acclaimed and New York Times best-selling memoirs The Liars’ Club and Cherry. Lit received an avalanche of rave reviews across the country in every major publication and was an immediate hit, making the New York Times, Independent Booksellers, San Francisco, and Boston Globe best-seller lists. It was a “Best Book of 2009”: #3 in nonfiction books on Time Magazine’s “The Top 10 Everything of 2009,” New York Times Book Review (Top 10), New York Times Michiko Kakutani's list (Top 10), New Yorker (Reviewer Favorite), Entertainment Weekly (Top 10), Time Magazine (Top 10), Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, Slate, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Cleveland Plain Dealer, and Seattle Times. And Karr won Audiofile’s Earphones Award for audio excellence for her reading of the audio book of Lit.

And, her talents at cussing can make a sailor blush.
