The Literary Arts Program at SAR, funded by the Lannan Foundation, is pleased to host the Fall “Writers Reading/Reading Writers” event, through which notable creative writers read from their own work, as well as discuss selections from writers who have been most influential in their own careers, in Heathcock’s case, Santa Fe novelist Cormac McCarthy.
“Undoubtedly, there is much grit and violence in this world, but there is also an abundance of tenderness and compassion. Heathcock displays a generosity of spirit that only those writers who love their characters can summon, and Volt is galvanizing proof of his talent.”
—The New York Times Book Review
On October 11th, Idaho Literature Fellow Alan Heathcock will read from his recent collection of short stories, Volt – named by Publishers Weekly as a “debut to watch in 2011,” and selected as an Editor’s Choice by The New York Times. Heathcock teaches fiction writing at Boise State University.
RSVP by October 6 to Jean Schaumberg at schaumberg[at]sarsf.org or (505) 954-7245.
