Her second novel, The Shipping News, won both a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. Her short story, Brokeback Mountain, was adapted into an Oscar-winning feature film and an opera. She’s lived everywhere in North America from Vermont to Wyoming to Newfoundland.

Fans of renowned American writer Annie Proulx will rejoice to know that tickets are still available for the author’s special appearance in Pittsburgh Thursday night.

Proulx will be in town to participate in Carnegie Museums’ first-of-its-kind Nexus initiative, which kicked off in January 2017.

In conversation with Carnegie Museums President Jo Ellen Parker, Proulx will share stories and insights from Barkskins, her latest book published in 2016 via Simon & Schuster.

Spanning 300 years, the epic work of historical fiction chronicles the experiences of immigrants to New France, and their descendants, and explores themes such as deforestation, cultural borders and global warming.

A book signing will follow the lecture. Proulx’s books will be for sale at the event via local shop Classic Lines.
