She has been seen on prime time television, on Broadway, and in numerous films and is the winner of both a MacArthur ("genius") grant, a National Humanities Medal from President Obama. She has been nominated for both the Pulitzer Prize and for two Tony Awards. Her presentation at Tech will be followed by a Q&A.
