Salt Lake City, UT – Author Edward P Jones spent some 10 years mulling over his novel "The Known World." So when he sat down to write it, the manuscript was finished in only three months. The work also earned him a 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Jones' most recent book is a collection of short stories, All Aunt Hagar's Children, and in it, he shows the same commitment to craft and history and an insight into the human condition. Edward P Jones is in Salt Lake City, and joins us in studio to talk about his work.
Thursday, November 1st at 7:00 p.m., Edward P Jones will speak at the Salt Lake City Public Library as part of the University of Utah's Guest Writer Series. For more information, call 596-5000 or click here
