Playwright Margaret Edson will be visiting the Library on Saturday, September 20th at 2:00 pm to talk about her Pulitzer Prize winning play, Wit.

Born in Washington, D.C. in 1961, Edson majored in Renaissance history and graduated magma cum laude in 1983 from Smith College in Massachusetts.

She currently teaches sixth-grade social studies in Atlanta, where she lives with her family.
