On Thursday, Oct. 28 at 8 pm, the English department will host distinguished novelist Howard Norman reading from his latest and critically acclaimed work What Is Left the Daughter (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). The latest in the department’s series of Jenny McKean Moore events, Norman’s reading will take place in the Marvin Center Amphitheater. The event is free and open to all.
Norman, an author and translator, teaches in the creative writing program at the University of Maryland, and has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment of the Arts fellowships (3 times), and the Lannan Literary Award for Fiction. With our own Prof. Jane Shore, he also happens to be one half of one of the country’s most celebrated literary couples.
Attention students planning to attend the Wooden Teeth Halloween party on Thursday: the party has been moved back to allow you to go to Howard Norman’s reading, and you are encouraged to show up in costume!
