Iowa Writers’ Workshop graduate Claire Lombardo will read from The Most Fun We Ever Had, a multi-generational novel in which the four adult daughters of a Chicago couple match wits, harbor grudges, and recklessly ignite old rivalries until a long-buried secret threatens to shatter the lives they've built. "Everything about this brilliant debut cuts deep: the humor, the wisdom, the pathos. Claire Lombardo writes like she's been doing it for a hundred years, and like she's been alive for a thousand." —Rebecca Makkai 

Claire Lombardo was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. A former social worker, she now teaches fiction writing and is at work on a second novel. She lives in Philadelphia.  She will be joined in conversation by author and Writers' Workshop faculty member Ethan Canin.
