The Writer's Studio

Lighthouse’s Writer's Studio brings the community together and enlivens the city’s cultural conversation. Renowned authors speak, read, and teach in both intimate settings and large theatre venues. We bring in highly distinguished writers, from New York Times bestselling authors to writers making their first, big splash. As a diverse group, the visiting authors are guaranteed to spark meaningful dialogue around important ideas.

Coming March 19-20, 2016: Michael Ondaatje

Michael Ondaatje, award-winning author of The English Patient, will join us for an onstage interview, an audience Q&A, a book signing, and a special craft talk.
