Ann Patchett '85

In a review of her new book State of Wonder in The Guardian (UK), Ann Patchett '85 says, "I had a couple of teachers in college who changed my life," referring to Allan Gurganus '72 and the late Grace Paley. She reflects on how each of them influenced her writing and development as an individual. Patchett also appeared on public radio's The Diane Rehm Show in advance of the book's release.
