The Department of English & Creative Writing invites faculty member, Professor Peter Orner to read for the Cleopatra Mathis Poetry & Prose series. Professor Orner's reading will be held Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at 4:30pm in the Sanborn Library. His most recent story collection, Maggie Brown & Others (Little, Brown & Co.) was released this past July, 2019.

“To read Peter Orner’s stories is to live simultaneously in so many lives: the reader’s memories intertwine with the characters’, the characters’ dreams resurface in the reader’s. People we have loved and lost, people we have encountered and missed—they wait for us to rediscover them in Orner’s stories. This book, exquisitely written, is as necessary and expansive as life.” —Yiyun Li, author of Where Reasons End and A Thousand Years of Good Prayers

Maggie Brown & Others will be available for purchase courtesy of The Norwich Bookstore.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
