Acclaimed writer George Saunders reads a passage from his prestigious Story Prize-winning collection, Tenth of December. In this public presentation for Rainy Day Books, Saunders discusses his path to becoming a writer, how his family and career have influenced his work, and the desire he has to connect with and engage readers. His unique experiences as a travel writer for GQ have taken him from luxurious hotel rooms in Dubai to time spent incognito in a homeless tent city in Fresno. Saunders remarks on how such experiences have helped to shape and refine his worldview, bringing a broader range of voices to his writing.
