Jill Bialosky
Jill Bialosky is celebrated as a novelist, essayist, memoirist, editor – and poet. Is there another American writer so accomplished in so many literary disciplines?

Born and raised in Cleveland, educated at Ohio University, Johns-Hopkins, and the University of Iowa’s Writers Workshop, she lives in New York where she is an Executive Editor for W. W. Norton. 

And she writes.  She is the author of three highly regarded novels, including House Under Snow (2002), The Life Room (2007), and the recently published The Prize, which has been hailed as a “true and dangerous novel.”  Her memoir, History of a Suicide (2011), was a bestseller and finalist for the Books for a Better Life Award.  Her work regularly appears in the most coveted venues, including The New Yorker, The Nation and O, The Oprah Magazine.

The Sea The Sea
The Sea The Sea is the singer-songwriter duo which Huffington Post describes as “two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear…” Chuck e. Costa and Mira Stanley are the young talents who make up The Sea The Sea, a name which they borrowed from Xenophon’s Anabasis, the ancient tale of Greek soldiers returning to their coast home after a long arduous battle inland.  “The sea!  The sea!” is their cry of joy.
