Description

The Black Mountain Institute invites you to attend a talk by Justin Torres.

Among a cascade of laudatory reviews, Vanity Fair magazine declared Justin Torres’ 2011 debut, We the Animals, “a gorgeous, howling coming-of-age novel that will devour your heart. The semi-autobiographical novel follows three sons of a mixed-race Brooklyn couple transplanted to a rough and rural upstate town. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Torres received the Rolón United States Artist Fellowship in Literature and the Wallace Stegner Fellowship at Stanford.

The reading will be followed by a Q&A with the audience and a book signing.

The Emerging Writers Series brings young poets and writers with at least one critically acclaimed book to the campuses of UNLV and UNR to work with creative writing students and give a public reading of their work. The series is made possible by a grant from Nevada Humanities.

The Emerging Writers Series (EWS) brings early career poets and fiction writers each year to the campuses of UNLV and UNR to present public readings and student-centered craft talks.
