Announcing Viet Nguyen and Walter Mosley in Conversation

At the Peltz Theater on September 5th at 8pm, Author Walter Mosley and Viet Thanh Nguyen discuss Mosley’s newest book: Elements of Fiction.


Walter Mosley is the author of more than fifty critically-acclaimed books, including the major bestselling mystery series featuring Easy Rawlins. His work has been translated into twenty-five languages and includes literary fiction, science fiction, political monographs, and a young adult novel. In 2013, he was inducted into the New York State Writers Hall of Fame, and he is the winner of numerous awards, including an O. Henry Award, the Mystery Writers of America’s Grand Master Award, a Grammy, PEN America’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and an Edgar Award.

In his earlier essential writing guide “The Year You Write Your Novel,” Mosley, creator of the acclaimed Easy Rawlins series, supplied aspiring writers with the basic tools to write a novel in one year. In this complementary follow-up, Mosley guides the writer through the elements of not just any fiction writing, but the kind that transcends convention and truly stands out. Inspiring, accessible, and told in a voice both trustworthy and wise, writers and readers alike will benefit from lessons taught by a true master. Mosley will be speaking  to Viet Thanh Nguyen, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for “The Sympathizer,” and currently a professor in English, American Studies and Ethnicity, and Comparative Literature at USC.
