Ruth Ozeki established herself as a master writer with the publication of A Tale for the Time Being, which was short-listed for the Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. The book is a genre-crossing, world-hopping metafictional novel about a bullied Japanese teen that blends the past, present, and future together without being tedious about the whole thing. To pull off that kind of book, you need serious focus and a deep understanding of narrative forms, skills Ozeki will try to pass along to the audience of this Hugo House Word Works lecture. In addition to being an internationally renowned writer, Ozeki is also a Zen Buddhist priest. Since this event runs in conjunction with Seattle University's Search for Meaning Festival, I'd wager you'll get some serious, professional information about the relationship between writing and meditation as well.
