Fiction writer to speak at Baber Room Thursday
A chance to be in the presence of a nationally recognized writer will be in act for students next week at 8 p.m. Thursday.
Fiction novelist Noy Holland will be in the Baber Room of Charles V. Park Library reading her fictional writing.
The event is part of the Meijer Visiting Writing Series, which was recently reinstated by the English and creative writing department, said English faculty member Matthew Roberson. The series will continue over the year with two more writers visiting Central Michigan University.
Roberson who is part of putting on the event, stresses students should attend based on the fact that it is an opportunity that doesn’t come that often.
“This is a chance to hear the work of writers — really prominent writers, (with) really strong reputations from around the country (and) sometimes from around the world,” Roberson said. “It’s an opportunity to go to meet these writers, to hear these writers bring their own work off the page.”
The event is free and open to the public. Holland will be reading from her most recent work, Bird.
