Author Lisa Selin Davis will speak and read from her work at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 11 in the Visual Arts Gallery in Dearlove Hall at SUNY Adirondack as part of the college’s Writers Project series.

Davis was born in Saratoga Springs and spent most of her childhood in Western Massachusetts. She moved to New York City at 21 after earning a degree in experimental feminist video. Davis started her career working in film and television (including Blue's Clues) and later earned a master’s of fine arts degree from Arizona State University. In addition to publishing the novels “Belly and “Lost Stars,” she has written articles for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Time.

“One of the fun things about writing fiction is that you never know what's going to come out, what snippet of information or observation will make its way into a character's head. And in that way, writing about all kinds of things — film, the environment, architecture, parenting — has allowed me access to information I might not have had or observations I might not have made otherwise,” Davis said.

Additional Writers Project programs in the fall include poet David Eye on Nov. 8 and book editor Naomi Huffman on Dec. 6. All appearances, which are free and open to the public, will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the Visual Arts Gallery in Dearlove Hall on the Queensbury campus.
