RPI: Susan Choi, Reading and McKinney Award Ceremony

Susan Choi, prize-winning fiction writer, is the author most recently of A Person of Interest
(2008), a thriller about a mild-mannered Asian American math professor
falsely accused of killing prominent scientists with mail bombs. In a
review of the book the L. A. Times said: “With nuance,
psychological acuity, and pitch-perfect writing, [Choi] tells the
large-canvas story of paranoia in the age of terror and the smaller
story of the cost of failed dreams….” Choi was a Pulitzer Prize finalist
for American Woman (2003), a novel based on the 1974 kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst. Choi’s first novel was The Foreign Student (1999), winner of the Asian-American Literary Award.

Cosponsored in conjunction with Rensselaer’s 70th McKinney Writing Contest and Reading
