Join us on Wednesday, October 13th at 7:30 pm via Zoom to talk with author and former Lighthouse Works fellow Claire Luchette about her new novel. It’s about four nuns who get reassigned to a halfway house in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. NPR’s Scott Simon calls it “a wry, insightful and remarkable debut novel.” Make sure to check out the entire interview on Morning Edition to learn more before we chat with Claire! A handful of books are available on a first-come-first-serve basis at Lighthouse Works.

A 2020 National Endowment for the Arts Fellow, Luchette graduated from the University of Oregon MFA program and has received grants and scholarships from MacDowell, Yaddo, the Millay Colony for the Arts, Lighthouse Works, the Elizabeth George Foundation, and the James Merrill House. Agatha of Little Neon is Luchette’s first novel.
