Event Description:

The Program in Creative Writing and Translation is proud to welcome Howard Norman as our 2018-19 Walton Visiting Writer in Fiction. Norman will offer a free public reading of his work at 6 pm, January 30th, at the Fayetteville Public Library

Howard Norman is a three-time winner of National Endowment for the Arts fellowships and a winner of the Lannan Award for fiction. He is the author of the novels The Museum Guard, My Darling Detective, and Devotion. His 1987 novel, The Northern Lights, was nominated for a National Book Award, as was his 1994 novel, The Bird Artist, which The New York Times describes as, “a bewitching little novel that glows like a night light in the reader’s mind.” Primarily set in Canada’s Maritime Provinces, his books have been translated into twelve languages. Norman is on the MFA faculty at the University of Maryland. 

Each year, the Walton Visiting Writers series in the Program in Creative Writing and Translation brings esteemed authors in poetry, fiction, and literary translation to the U of A to give free public readings and to work with graduate students in the creative writing MFA program. Past Walton Writers include Natalie Diaz, Chris Abani, Caryl Phillips, Franz Wright, Esther Allen, and Karen Tei Yamashita.

All readings are free and open to the public. Made possible by the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of English, the Honors College, the Walton Family Foundation, and the James E. and Ellen Wadley Roper Professorship in Creative Writing.
