Audience members erupted into laughter time and time again as Meg Wolitzer and Roger Rosenblatt exchanged witty remarks during Wednesday’s morning lecture.
The humor and wit seeded throughout the conversation demonstrated Wolitzer’s philosophy on its use in novels.
“Humor in a novel has to exist the way humor in a conversation exists,” she said. “It comes out of character.”
Between the jokes and laughter, Rosenblatt and Wolitzer discussed female authors, decisions writers make and character development in novels.
