About this Event
In conversation with Sara Nović
In Ariel Delgado Dixon’s debut novel Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You, two sisters endure an upbringing of deprivation in a rundown warehouse and in a wilderness camp for troubled youths. Referred to by author Joy Williams as “eventful, complex, admirably structured, relentless, and spooky”, it tells a story of trauma and the bonds of family. A 2017 nominee for the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Award for Emerging Writers and shortlisted for the Masters Review Anthology Prize, Delgado Dixon has published writing in Kenyon Review, O: The Oprah Magazine, The Mississippi Review, and The Greensboro Review, among other periodicals.
Sara Nović teaches in the Popular Fiction MFA program at Emerson College, and is an instructor of Deaf studies at Stockton University. Her first novel, Girl at War, won the American Library Association’s Alex Award, and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Nović has an MFA in fiction and literary translation from Columbia University, and lives with her family in Philadelphia.
