Seismic Salon: T.J. Stiles

April 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT



News alert, nonfiction fans! Litquake has secured the participation of two-time Pulitzer Prize winning biographer T.J. Stiles for our Seismic Salon series. Called “a superb researcher” by the Washington Post, Stiles received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in History for Custer’s Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New America, and the 2010 Pulitzer for Biography (as well as the 2009 National Book Award for Nonfiction) for The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt. He is also author of Jesse James: Last Rebel of the Civil War, which was a New York Times notable book and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Biography. A Guggenheim fellow, he has taught creative nonfiction at Columbia. He currently serves on the governing boards of the Authors Guild, the Organization of American Historians, and the Society of American Historians. And if politics are your thing, T.J. loves to talk about that as well.

Buy T.J. Stiles’ books at the Litquake Bookshop.

Seismic Salons are a series of fundraisers offering conversation time with A-list authors for 10 lucky participants. All proceeds benefit Litquake’s on-going programs.
