New York State Writers Institute Visiting Author Series: Reading-Charles Baxter & James Lasdun

November 15, 2016 - November 15, 2016

Charles Baxter is widely celebrated as a master of the short story form, for which he has won numerous awards. His newest collection, There’s Something I Want You to Do (2015), was a finalist for the 2016 Story Prize. Fiction writer Julie Orringer said, “To read these stories—hilarious, tragic, surprising, and indelibly human—is to receive revelation at the hands of a master.” Baxter’s bestselling novel The Feast of Love (2000) was a finalist for the National Book Award. James Lasdun is a fiction and nonfiction writer, poet, and screenwriter. His works include Bluestone: New and Selected Poems (2015); the story collection It’s Beginning to Hurt, listed by The Atlantic Monthly as one of its top five books of 2009; and the novel The Horned Man (2002), a New York Times Notable Book. His most recent book is the psychological thriller The Fall Guy (Oct 2016). In advance praise novelist Joseph O’Neill said “What a sinister and searching novel this is—and what a delight. James Lasdun is one of our great writers.”
