On Friday, October 21, The Other Stories visited The Oracle Club, a writing and art space run by Julian Tepper (episode 77). The Oracle Club hosted us, and we in turn hosted three of their members: Christopher Lee, David Goodwillie, and Hannah Lillith Assadi. Their bios follow, along with photos from the evening reading.
Christopher Lee is a physician, epidemiologist, and writer. His academic writing focuses on humanitarian policy, displacement, and homelessness. He is currently finishing his first novel, entitled Us, Then, which examines the relationship between agency and place in a postlapsarian world as viewed through the lens of one character’s experiences in an unlikely and failed relationship. Christopher trained at Harvard Medical School, the University of Oxford, and Johns Hopkins University. He lives in Brooklyn.
David Goodwillie is the author of the novel American Subversive, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and the memoir Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time, for which he was named one of the “Best New Writers of 2006” by members of the PEN American Center. He also writes about books for the Times and Daily Beast, and has played professional baseball, worked as a private investigator, and been an expert at Sotheby’s auction house.
Hannah Lillith Assadi received her MFA in Fiction from the Columbia University School of the Arts. She was raised in Arizona and lives in Brooklyn. Her first novel Sonora is forthcoming in the spring of 2017.
