On January 3, 2013, we hosted a live chat with Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction author Junot Díaz. He answered questions from BillMoyers.com readers about his short stories and novel, the literature classes he teaches at MIT and the art of writing fiction.

Junot Díaz won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. His most recent book, This Is How You Lose Her, a collection of short stories, was released last fall.

Our live chat followed Bill Moyers’ interview with Díaz, in which he shared some sharp, witty and wise insights on what Moby Dick and Star Wars have to tell us about the new American story and finding our voice. He also told Bill how he was introduced to libraries as a child and why they inspired him.
