Joyce Carol Oates

I chose to do Joyce Carol Oates, since she works at Princeton University, which was a few miles away from my high school we always tried to interview her for our English classes, but she always refused. Oates only teaches one writing class at the University with I think maybe twelve students. On a side note my friend has come home for dinner on a few occasions to find Carol Oates sitting at his kitchen table.
Carol Oates was born in 1938 in Upstate NY. She went to Syracuse University, where she graduated as Valedictorian. She has written more than 70 books, novels, and short story collections. She has won Rosenthal Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the O'Henry Prize, the Elmer Holmes Bobst Lifetime Achievement Award, the Rea Award, in 1978, membership in the American Academy Institute. Carol Oates has been nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize in Literature.
