Ebershoff, author of "The Danish Girl," will read from his work at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.
"The Danish Girl," published in 2000 by Viking, was the first novel by Ebershoff, who is publishing director of the Modern Library, a division of Random House. It was inspired by the real life of Danish painter Einar Wegener, who in 1931 was the first man to undergo a gender reassignment operation.
The novel was a New York Times Notable Book and a Chicago Tribune Editor's Choice. It won the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Lambda Literary Award from the Lambda Literary Foundation.
Last year, Ebershoff produced a collection of short stories, "The Rose City." His second novel, "Pasadena," is due out this summer.
The event is part of the Creative Writing Program's Althea Ward Clark Reading Series .
