Lydia Davis spent three days with us as a Kelly Writers House Fellow. On April 24, 2017, she met with the students in the KWH Fellows Seminar for three hours and then gave a reading, in which she performed several dozen new micro-fictions (most of them unpublished; all of them uncollected as yet in a book). On Tuesday morning, April 25, I moderated an interview/conversation with her. Here are some photos I took. Click on any image for a larger view.
