Bestselling author Stephen Markley will visit the University of Wyoming for two free public events Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 26-27.
Markley will host a screenwriting discussion Tuesday at 4:10 p.m. in Room 506 of Coe Library. He then will read from and discuss his new book, “The Deluge,” at an event titled “In Conversation with Stephen Markley” Wednesday at 4:10 p.m. in the McMurry Reading Room of Coe Library. A book signing will immediately follow, and books will be available for purchase. Light refreshments will be provided.
“We are looking forward to having Markley visit UW again,” says Susan Aronstein, a professor in the UW Department of English. “In addition to these two public events, he will meet with Master of Fine Arts students and undergraduates in creative writing, and he will attend a luncheon with students in the Honors College as well as a meeting of the honors book club, which read his latest book.”
“Immersive and ambitious, (‘The Deluge’) shows the range of its author’s gifts: polyphonic narration, silken sentences and elaborate world-building,” according to The New York Times.
Markley, a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, is an American journalist and author whose work includes memoirs and novels. In addition to “The Deluge,” which spans the years 2013-2030, he is the author of “Publish This Book,” “Tales of Iceland” and “Ohio.” His essays and short fiction can be found across the internet. He also has written for the Hulu comedy “Only Murders in the Building.” He lives in Los Angeles. For more information, visit his website at www.stephenmarkley.com.
Markley also will visit UW’s Neltje Center for Excellence in Creativity and the Arts Friday, Sept. 29, to give a reading and meet with students in Sheridan.
The UW events are sponsored by UW Libraries, the Honors College, the Department of English and the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research.
