“There were different kinds of quiet. Not all bad. There was the fertile kind of artists, which she knew from studio visits and enjoyed. She liked the economy of speech, that words came from seeing; conversation only happened when there was something to say. Silence was always productive: full of ideas and crowded with consciousness.” — Evgenia Citkowitz, The Shades
Citkowitz will read from The Shades, her first novel, followed by a conversation with Mona Simpson.
