Conversations With Marilynne Robinson

101 Books

Today’s video comes courtesy of the University of Iowa and the Big Ten Network.

As an aside, who knew the Big Ten network produced high-brow literature pieces like this? I thought it was strictly sports.

As an SEC guy, I’ve got to say—um, where you at SEC? Let’s get some William Faulkner documentaries sandwiched in between college baseball games this spring!

Anyway, Marilynne Robinson is on faculty at the University of Iowa and, five years ago, she was interviewed as part of the “Conversations from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop” series.

She talks about her three famous novels—Housekeeping, Gilead and Home—as well as her writing process. It’s an excellent interview if you have the time.
