Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell visits Yale

The Writing Center and the Schlesinger Visiting Writers Series presented Man Booker Prize nominee David Mitchell in two events on Tuesday, April 8, 2014:
A Master’s Tea at 4:00 in Morse College and the 2014 John Hersey lecture at 7:30pm in Sudler Hall, WLH. Both were very well attended as the Cloud Atlas author is immensely popular on campus. Mitchell is seen here signing books after his talk, which was described by one participant as highly entertaining and also quite informative.
