Lauren Groff is the author of three novels and two short-story collections, including The Monsters of Templeton, Delicate Edible Birds, and Arcadia (a New York Times Notable Book and winner of the Medici Book Club Prize).  Her third novel, Fates and Furies, was a finalist for the National Book Award in Fiction as well as the National Book Critics Circle Award and won the 2015 American Booksellers’ Association Indies’ Choice Award.  The New York Times notes that “One of the pleasures of reading Ms. Groff is her sheer unpredictability: She can inject her narrator’s voice at any time, turn a sentence into a small hurricane.” Her short fiction has been selected for inclusion in five editions of the Best American Short Stories, and Granta magazine has named her one of the Best Young American Novelists of her generation.  Her latest work is Florida (2018), which Vogue magazine calls “Easily the year’s best story collection.”  She lives in Gainesville, Florida, with her husband, two sons, and dog.
