Hannah Tinti

Authors & Ideas: Hannah Tinti, Bestselling author of The Good Thief, and founder and editor of One Story magazine – Cabinets of Wonder

Sunday: 4:00 PM – February 25, 2018, Cultural Arts Center

Widely respected in the literary community, Hannah Tinti is known for her singular voice and her ability to weave elements of literary and genre fiction into her novels and short stories, appealing to both Adult and YA readers. Co-founder and Editor in Chief of the award-winning magazine One Story, she is also the author of three books.

Tinti’s most recent book, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley, is a masterful coming-of-age story and literary thriller. Bestselling author Ann Patchett has deemed the novel “one part Quentin Tarantino, one part Scheherazade, and twelve parts wild innovation”, praising Tinti as “an old-fashioned storyteller of the highest order.”

Tinti’s debut novel, The Good Thief, won the American Library Association’s Alex Award as well as The Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize, and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.  Tinti  received the PEN/Nora Magid award for excellence in editing in 2009. In 2011, she became the Literary Commentator for the Public Radio program Selected Shorts, interviewing authors and actors about the importance of literature and reading.

As an editor, teacher, and author, Hannah Tinti offers audiences first-hand insights into the creative writing process and the world of publishing.
