Mark Helprin appears at the 2013 Library of Congress National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: Mark Helprin's three collections of short stories, six novels and three children's books cannot be defined as belonging to any particular literary movement. Time magazine once said, "He lights his own way." The New Yorker published his work for nearly 25 years, and his essays on politics and aesthetics routinely appear in The Atlantic Monthly, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Helprin is a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and a former Guggenheim Fellow. His latest novel is "In Sunlight and in Shadow."
