Christopher Castellani ’94—Guggenheim Fellowship

Christopher Castellani ’94 was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in April, which will allow him to devote significant time in 2015 to the research and production of his fourth novel, Leading Men, about the lives of two literary couples in Italy in the ’50s and ’60s. Castellani’s third novel, All This Talk of Love (2013), was a New York Times Editor’s Choice and a finalist for the Ferro-Grumley Literary Award. He is the artistic director of Grub Street, a nonprofit literary arts center in Boston. Castellani is also on the faculty and academic board of the MFA Program at Warren Wilson and the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference.
