We are thrilled to partner with Yaddo to bring the best in new writing and new ideas to the Capital District for the speaker series YADDO PRESENTS.

Whiting Award-winning author Sigrid Nunez will discuss her new novel, "The Friend" with poet Jay Rogoff.

When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building. 

Elegiac and searching, The Friend is both a meditation on loss and a celebration of human-canine devotion.
