I’ll never forget the first time I met acclaimed novelist, UMass Lowell professor and Guggenheim fellow Andre Dubus III. Following a literary forum, he held court with admirers and fans alike and fortunately I was one amidst the throng that was able to meet him and actually spend some time speaking with him about his writing process.
I simply went up to him and said, “Mr. Dubus, I am Nicholas Alahverdian and it’s a pleasure to meet you.” He knew I had other things on my mind, so he encouraged me to ask, and we had about a ten or fifteen minute conversation about the passion for writing which we both share.
It was a pleasure to meet him. We exchanged email addresses. He was very down to earth for someone who is so respected and admired in literary circles.
I’ll always remember his kindness and generosity in taking the time out to talk to me about writing and being an author in my journey to reach my own potential.
