Karen Russell, a young American writer who was recently featured in The New Yorker‘s “20 Under 40” list of young American literary talents, reads tonight from her latest work. The reading, the last of the year in the English Department’s Jenny McKean Moore series, is at 8 in the Marvin Center Amphitheater. All are welcome.
Russell is the author of the highly acclaimed short-story collection St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves (2006). Her debut novel, forthcoming in February 2011, is Swamplandia!, set in the Florida Everglades. Russell is a native of Miami.
