From The Duquensne Duke:
Author Stewart O’Nan talks to students, profs about writing at Duquesne’s Power Center Ballroom
Acclaimed American author Stewart O’Nan spoke and read some of his work at Duquesne on Monday in the Power Center Ballroom, as part of the English department’s First Year Writing Program Event.
O’Nan, a Pittsburgh native, whose award-winning novels have earned national recognition, drew a crowd of 750 students and professors. His most well-known novel, 2008 national bestseller Last Night at the Lobster, was nominated for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
During his speech, O’Nan stressed that it is important for every writer to constantly read.
“I love to read. I think all writing comes from reading and a love of reading,” O’Nan said.
