Annie Dillard, Painter

After after publishing her novel The Maytrees (2007), U.S. writer Annie Dillard announced that she was giving up writing.

Booklovers everywhere were as disappointed as they were astonished.

The good news is that literature’s loss is painting’s gain: Dillard is now funneling her creativity into painting.

Wicked Local  has some details, and a sample of Dillard’s work.

Meanwhile, back at the library, you are in for a series of rare treats if you haven’t already read – or re-read – Dillard’s thirteen books, one of which, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, won the Pulitzer Prize.
