Elizabeth Kostova Alumna Reading

Elizabeth Kostova's first novel, The Historian, a tale of three generations of historians on the track of the original Dracula, was the fastest-selling debut novel in American publishing history. It has sold more than three million copies worldwide in 40 languages, has won numerous awards, and is being made into a film by SONY/Columbia Pictures. Her second novel, The Swan Thieves, a story of artists, psychiatry, and the rise of Impressionist painting, was published in 2010 and has been translated into 28 languages. She has also published introductions to new editions of Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Kostova's short fiction, essays, and poetry have appeared in such venues as Mississippi Review, Poets & Writers Magazine, The Best American Poetry, and Michigan Quarterly Review. She is currently at work on a third novel, to be published by Random House. Kostova holds a BA in British Studies from Yale University and an MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan. She teaches at conferences in Eastern Europe and the U.S., reads and lectures internationally, and is co-creator of the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation (www.ekf.bg), which provides competitive opportunities for Bulgarian writers, as well as opportunities for native-English writers to travel to Bulgaria. She lives with her family in Asheville, North Carolina. 

UMMA is pleased to be the site for the Zell Visiting Writers Series, which brings outstanding writers each semester. The Series is made possible through a generous gift from UM alumna Helen Zell ('64). For more information, please see www.lsa.umich.edu/english/grad/mfa/mfaeve.asp.
