Kapnick Distinguished Writer-in-Residence
This fall marks the launch of the new Kapnick Family Distinguished Writer-in-Residence Program, a rotating professorship designed to bring some of the most important American and global writers to Charlottesville to teach an MFA workshop and give a series of lectures on a wide range of literary topics. Joining the faculty this fall is American master James Salter, a revered figure among post war literature in our nation. Salter, a highly decorated Korean War fighter pilot, used his wartime experiences to fuel his 1956 novel The Hunters. His other novels include Light Years, A Sport and a Pastime, and, most recently, All That Is.
