Phoebe Gloeckner

Writer and visual artist Phoebe Gloeckner is the author of A Child’s Life and Other Stories (1998) and The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2002), called "one of the most brutally honest, shocking, tender and beautiful portrayals of growing up female in America.” A Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, Gloeckner is currently working on a novel based on the lives of several families in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Gloeckner is an assistant professor at the University of Michigan.

Unless otherwise noted, all programs take place on Thursdays at 5:10 pm at the historic Michigan Theater, located at 603 E. Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor, and are free of charge and open to the public.
