BD Hanya Yanagihara Cover 395x600
The Dallas Museum of Art’s Arts & Letters Live series will host acclaimed author Hanya Yanagihara. Yanagihara’s novel, “A Little Life,” won the Kirkus Prize, was a National Book Award Finalist, and garnered a spot on the 2015 Man Booker Prize Short-List for Fiction. “A Little Life” follows four college friends living in New York as young adults and examines how friends can help remake a life that has been destroyed. Insightful, devastating, and hopeful, “A Little Life” pushes the limits of human cruelty while examining the restorative power of love.

Enter to win a pair of tickets to hear the up-and-coming writer in conversation with KERA’s Krys Boyd at the March 22 event at the DMA. Winners will also and receive a copy of Yanagihara’s award-winning novel, available to be signed by the author at the event. What’s more you’ll also be able to carry the book home with you in your modish DMA tote bag.
