As part of the Walt Whitman Series, St. Francis presents a talk by Julie Orringer, author of the 2003 award winning short story collection, How to Breathe Underwater.
Scheduled for Wednesday November 3rd at 4:30 pm, the talk is free and open to the public.
Presumably Julie will be reading from her latest work, The Invisible Bridge, a novel which was released earlier this year.
This latest book tells the story of a Hungarian student in Paris and his family in late 1930’s Europe, following their mounting hardships in an “all too real fictional world” which “for the time it takes to read this fine novel, and for a long time afterward, becomes our world too.” Read the full New York Times review here.
This talk presents a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with a talented upcoming writer who is sure to grow in stature.
The talk will be in room 7402 in Maroney Forum for Arts, Culture and Education from 4:30 to 5:30 on November 3rd. Visit the St. Francis website for more information.
