Invitation from the Rockefeller Foundation
I am thrilled to be taking up a month long residency as an Arts & Literary Arts fellow at The Bellagio Centre on Lake Como to work on a new project. As a novelist for the young, I will be joining them in February 2018.
Every year, the Rockefeller Foundation gathers a group of artists, scholars & policymakers from around the world to engage in dialogue around the idea of building resilience.
Resilience in the young requires hope and fortitude and the impetus to build hope and fortitude is what lies at the heart of writing for the young.
