Kristopher Jansma - Why We Came To The City

Thursday, February 18, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Jansma’s striking first novel, The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards, won the Sherwood Anderson fiction award. Now a writing teacher at SUNY New Paltz and a graduate lecturer at Sarah Lawrence, Jansma centers his second work of fiction on a group of college friends. Five years after graduation, the circle includes an astronomer, a blog editor, an art dealer, a would-be poet, and an investment banker. As Jansma traces the twists and turns of his characters’ various relationships, he conveys rich psychological and group dynamics, complicated and tested by romance and serious illness.
