Thanks to everyone who made it out, this past Tuesday, to another wonderful Cabell First Novelist reading and award presentation! Tuesday’s event brought more than two hundred attendees to the W.E. Singleton Center on the VCU campus for a reading by Helene Wecker, winner for her debut novel The Golem and the Jinni, as well as a panel discussion featuring Ms. Wecker and her agent, Sam Stoloff of the Frances Goldin Literary Agency in New York City. The panel was moderated by former Cabell Fellow Shannon O’Neill.
Here are some photos from Tuesday’s event:
For those who missed Tuesday’s event, or those who attended and would like to relive the memories, VCU Libraries has already uploaded a video of the event on their Youtube page. Thanks again to all who helped honor Helene Wecker’s debut novel, The Golem and the Jinni. It was a magical evening we won’t soon forget!
