Join a reading series focused on contemporary fiction of the American West. How is the West evoked in literature that has emerged since the year 2000? The Library’s executive director Jenny Emery Davidson, Ph.D., will lead the discussion of four short and compelling works to challenge how we understand the West: Train Dreams by Denis Johnson, The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, and “Deeper Winter” by Alexander Maksik. The reading series is free and open to all, but advanced registration is required so that you can receive the syllabus ahead of time.

Thursdays, January 22-February 12
6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Regional History Department
