In 2008, Cynthia Ozick published a new collection of stories, Dictation, and won both the PEN/Malumud Award and PEN/Nabokov Award for lifetime achievement. Also a novelist and critic, Ms. Ozick "embodies literature's finest potential: the strength and rigor of formality combined with the flexibility and vigor (the sap) of creativity," wrote the Los Angeles Times. This program is one of a series of afternoon talks, hosted by Roger Rosenblatt, which features intimate discussions with writers about their work, their passions and the books on their night tables.
