Located in what was formerly known as the Mercantile Library, the Center for Fiction has some old-world charm, but make no mistake: this literary arts space has one of the more modern sensibilities in town. This is where the legenary editor Gordon Lish—who has worked with many of America's most innovative writers—returned to teaching. The events themselves are adventurous and high-quality: Mary Gaitskill's talk "Why We Read" comes to mind, as does a Colson Whitehad discussion about the importance of craft.
