Haystack Book Talks presents Nell Painter with Byron Kim and Lisa Sigal
Time: 1:00 pm-2:00 pm
Nell Irvin Painter is Edwards Professor of American History Emerita at Princeton University and author of, among other notable books, The History of White People (2010) and Sojourner Truth, A Life, A Symbol (1996). She is the recipient of virtually every major fellowship and honor the profession has to offer. After retiring in 2005, she earned a BFA in painting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers and an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design—experiences at the center of her widely praised memoir, and National Book Critics Circle award finalist for autobiography, Old In Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over (2018). She will be joined in conversation by Byron Kim and Lisa Sigal, co-directors of the Yale Norfolk School of Art.
