LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 22, 2016) — National book critics know Hannah Pittard as a talented author. Students at the University of Kentucky know her as their teacher, an assistant professor of English in the College of Arts and Sciences.
Pittard, the author of three published novels and one forthcoming, “Atlanta, 1962” (2017), most recently attracted a substantial amount of media attention (BuzzFeed, The Washington Post, The New York Times) for her latest thriller/mystery “Listen to Me.”
In the video, Pittard discusses how she stays humble even as her works draw more and more attention from critics across the country? And she talks about why she chooses to keep teaching?
This video is part of our new monthly UKNow series, “5 Questions with …” The goal is to learn more about the people leading, teaching, healing, discovering and learning at the University of Kentucky.
