The Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer Series

The Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer Series regularly welcomes successful alumni from our fiction program to speak about their work and craft with our Boston University Creative Writing community.

The reader for the next Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer Series event, which will take place in spring of 2023, has yet to be announced.

Our most recent event featured PEN/Hemingway award-winning author Weike Wang (Fiction ’15). Weike joined us to read from her novel Joan is Okay, which was released by Random House in January of 2022, and participated in a Q&A session with the audience.

The Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer Series is made possible by the generous support of Robert Hildreth.
