Hudson Valley Writers Center Benefit Gala featuring Michael Cunningham, Susan Hodara, & Angelina Mak

The Hudson Valley Writers’ Center’s annual benefit at Tappan Hill features the delicious food and drinks from Abigail Kirsch catering, auction-item shopping courtesy of so many generous business owners and friends of the HVWC, and a very special honoree: Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist and screenwriter; Susan Hodara, long-time HVWC memoir instructor; and Angelina Mak, former HVWC board member.

This year is the HVWC’s 30th Anniversary and to celebrate, we will take a very special trip down memory lane. 

Cunningham is an American novelist and screenwriter. He is best known for his 1998 novel The Hours, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the PEN/Faulkner Award in 1999. Other novels include Golden States (1984), A Home at the End of the World (1990), Flesh and Blood (1995), Specimen Days (2005), By Nightfall (2010) and The Snow Queen (2014). He is also the author of the 2015 short story collection A Wild Swan and Other Tales, as well as the 2002 work of nonfiction Land’s End: A Walk in Provincetown, and the screenplays to A Home at the End of the World (2004) and Evening (2007). Cunningham is a senior lecturer of English and creative writing at Yale University.
