Moore has received several honors for her work, among them the Irish Times International Prize for Literature, a Lannan Foundation fellowship, as well as the PEN/Malamud Award and the Rea Award for her achievement in the short story. She is currently in residence at the New York Public Library as a 2017 Cullman fellow, and will return to Nashville in September to resume teaching at Vanderbilt.
