The Inside Out Speaker Series will host author Laird Hunt from 1-3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7, in the Visitor's Center at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Bonne Terre, Mo.
Laird Hunt will read and discuss his fiction. He is the author of four books, a short story collection and three novels: The Impossibly; Indiana, Indiana; The Exquisite; and Ray of the Star (all from Coffee House Press). His translation of Oliver Rohe's Vacant Lot is recently out from Counterpath Press.
"Strange, original, and utterly brilliant, Laird Hunt is one of the most talented young writers on the American scene today," comments Paul Auster.
This discussion is part of the Inside Out Speaker, which includes talks, readings and performances on the SLU campus at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correction Center.
Anyone interested in attending must RSVP to Julie O'Heir at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Oct. 28.
