When the Paris Review approached the writer Lorrie Moore about participating in one of its famous long form author interviews, Moore responded by saying, "My life is impossible to make interesting—others have tried before." Despite what Moore might think about her own life, the lives of her characters are as interesting as they come, living and breathing in the pages of short story collections like her acclaimed debut Self-Help, the novel A Gate at the Stairs and most recently the story collection Bark.

Moore is scheduled to speak at Tulane's Kendall Cram lecture hall Monday, March 2 at 7 p.m. The writer will read from Bark and answer questions. The event is free and open to the public.  

Here, Moore writes about how to become a writer, and here she reads from Bark
