For students/faculty of GSU, we’d like to let you know about an author reading taking place on Thursday, February 21. Colson Whitehead will be at GSU’s Troy Moore Library (9th floor GCB) giving a craft talk at 1:30 p.m. At 7:30 p.m. of the same evening, he’ll give a reading in the GSU Speakers Auditorium, followed by a Q&A and book signing in the Troy Moore Library.
The event is free, but because of space constraints, it is open only to GSU students, faculty, and staff, and you must reserve a free ticket here: http://colsonwhiteheadatgsu.eventbrite.com/
Whitehead’s four critically acclaimed and bestselling novels are Zone One; The Intuitionist, winner of the Quality Paperback Book Club’s New Voices Award; John Henry Days, which received the Young Lions Fiction Award and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award; Apex Hides the Hurt, winner of the PEN/Oakland Award; and Sag Harbor, finalist for the PEN/Faulkner award and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. He has received a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, a Whiting Writers Award, and a fellowship at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers.
We hope to see you there!
