Autograph Series

Gemini Ink’s Autograph Series presents writers of national and international stature‚ many of them recipients of major prizes such as the Pulitzer or National Book Award‚ in a free public performance followed by audience Q&A and book signing. Autograph Series is partially supported by a ticketed colloquium luncheon with the visiting writer, which includes an “up close and personal” Q&A with the author. Previous Autograph writers have included Grace Paley, Tim O’Brien, Edward P. Jones, Ha Jin, Sandra Cisneros, Luis Alberto Urrea, Philip Levine and US Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera.
