Famed author of Olive Kitteridge and My name is lucy barton

From an early age Elizabeth Strout was drawn to reading and writing, and spent hours of her childhood at her local library, lingering among the stacks of fiction. By the age sixteen, the ambitious young Strout was sending her stories into magazines. Today, she is the author of several award-winning novels, including Abide with Me, a national bestseller, Amy and Isabelle, a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, and Olive Kitteridge, winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. In 2014, Olive Kitteridge was made into a popular HBO’s miniseries, starring Frances McDormand, and won six Emmy Awards. Her latest bestselling book, My Name is Lucy Barton has been long-listed for The Man Booker Prize, and is the story of how a simple hospital visit can become a portal to the most tender relationship of all—the one between mother and daughter.
