NHPR's Peter Biello and author Jennifer Egan at the Music Hall in Portsmouth

NHPR and The Music Hall present Writers on a New England Stage with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan, recorded live at The Music Hall in Portsmouth.

Egan has written several novels and a collection of short stories. Jennifer Egan's novel A Visit From the Goon Squad won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Los Angeles Times book prize. 

Not only a writer of fiction, Egan is an accomplished journalist and has written frequently for the New York Times Magazine.

Her newest novel, Manhattan Beach, tells the story of the only female diver at Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II. It's a story that made use of Egan's excellent research skills.
