Gertrude &  Harold S. Vanderbilt Visiting Writers Series: Dana Johnson

Each semester Vanderbilt Creative Writing and the Gertrude &  Harold S. Vanderbilt Visiting Writers Series brings writers to campus to read from their work and visit classes.

The readings series is an extraordinary program that gives students, faculty, and the Nashville community a chance to meet and talk with some of the best writers of today.

Both books were nominees for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. Her work has appeared in The Paris Review, Callaloo, The Iowa Review and Huizache, among others, and anthologized in Watchlist: 32 Stories by Persons of Interest, Shaking the Tree: A Collection of New Fiction and Memoir by Black Women, and California Uncovered: Stories for the 21st Century. Born and raised in and around Los Angeles, she is a professor of English at the University of Southern California.
