The Department of English is delighted to welcome acclaimed author Carole Maso for a reading from her work-in-progress, The Bay of Angels. Maso describes the work as a “war-inflected novel” concerned with beauty as well as suffering. The form of the novel, according to Maso, “embraces fiction, essay, memoir, poetry, photographs, drawings and other ephemera.”
The reading will take place at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, in the Merwin Gallery of the Joyce Eichhorn Ames School of Art on Illinois Wesleyan University’s campus.
A brief Q & A and book signing will follow the reading.
This event is free and open to the public. It is supported by additional funding from the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Women’s and Gender Studies, the Office of the Provost, and IWU Pride Alliance.
