On Thursday, February 15, come out and attend the next installment of the Zell Visiting Writers Series, featuring Hieu Minh Nguyen and Nicholson Baker. The Zell Visiting Writers Series invites one or two distinguished authors to share their work, and it’s a great way to gain some insight into what the Michigan writing community is all about, as well as to listen to some beautiful works of literature!
Hieu Minh Nguyen is a queer, Vietnamese American poet who is associated with Kundiman and Muzzle Magazine. His first book (This Way to the Sugar) has won the Minnesota Book Award and the Lambda Literary Award, and his other works have been published in places such as the Southern Indiana Review, Guernica, and the Paris-American.
Nicholson Baker has published a total of nine novels and four pieces of nonfiction, as well as various other pieces of work, in places such as The New Yorker, Harper’s, and The New York Review of Books. Baker’s work has won him a National Book Critics Circle Award, House of Holes, and other awards.
The reading will take place in the UMMA from 5:30 – 6:30. Admission is free.
