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.
