Faculty, staff, and students are invited to learn about the poets, novelists, essayists, and biographers coming to campus for free readings this semester, according to Lars Larson, English: Pulitzer-winner Marilynne Robinson (this week!), five-time Oregon Book Award winner Tracy Daugherty, Lakota poet and musician Trevino L. Brings Plenty, and the fall Schoenfeldt Distinguished Writer Luis Alberto Urrea.
In anticipation of Urrea’s November 7 visit, the Schoenfeld series is offering his latest novel for free: House of Broken Angels, a humorous and heartfelt exploration of life and identity told through a sprawling San Diego family gathering in the borderlands between a birthday and a funeral. Email Schoenfeldt@up.edu to reserve your free copy. For details email Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
