Reading and Conversation Series: Sharon Emmerichs

March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tuesday, March 5, 2024 | 7:00-8:00PM
via Zoom




Bio: ​Sharon Emmerichs was born in Sweden to American parents and grew up in Wisconsin near Lake Michigan. She has been a writer all her life, from the time she scribbled ‘words’ and pictures on pieces of paper, stapled them together, and called it a book. Her love of stories later translated into an English degree, and then she went on to get her MA and PhD in medieval and early modern literature… and because she collects degrees the way some people collect stamps or baseball cards, she graduated with her creative writing MFA in fiction in 2021. Her debut novel, Shield Maiden, was an instant Sunday Times top ten bestseller and has been published and translated in multiple countries. She is an Associate Professor of Shakespeare and medieval literature in beautiful Alaska, where she lives with Juneau, the derpiest Siberian husky ever.
