(I)NTERVIEW: Wally Lamb

Mar 5, 2012

Wally Lamb graciously agreed to be a part of the (I)NTERVIEW Series, conducted by CPBN Media Lab Interns, on February 1, 2012. 

 Wally Lamb is the author of four New York Times bestselling novels— Wishin’ and Hopin’The Hour I First Believed, I Know This Much is True, and She’s Come Undone.  He is currently at work on his fifth, We Are Water.  Lamb also edited Couldn’t Keep It to Myself and I’ll Fly Away, two volumes of essays from students in his writing workshop at York Correctional Institution, a women’s prison in Connecticut, where he has been a volunteer facilitator for the past twelve years. I found Lamb to be very energetic and full of life.  His stories were heartening, as well as comical.   Lamb is much more than just an author; he is a teacher, a parent, an activist and an artist.
