Elizabeth Graver’s fifth novel, Kantika, was inspired by her grandmother, Rebecca Cohen, who was born into a Sephardic Jewish family in Istanbul and whose tumultuous life journey took her to Spain, Cuba, and New York.  Graver’s previous novel, The End of the Point, was longlisted for the National Book Award in Fiction and selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.  Other novels include Awake, The Honey Thief, and Unravelling.  Her story collection, Have You Seen Me?, won the Drue Heinz Literature Prize and her work has been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, the O. Henry Prize Stories, the Pushcart Prize Anthology, and Best American Essays.  She teaches at Boston College.

The Working Writers Series is an annual lecture series that brings writers to campus to read from their works, discuss their craft, and answer questions from students and community members.
