The UA English Department is proud to present faculty members, Manuel Munoz and Johanna Skibsrud, who will read from their work during a special literary event. Join us for a delightful afternoon of light food, beer, wine and stimulating conversation at the home of Dr. Robert and Mrs. Anne Segal.
Manuel Muñoz will be reading from "The Reason Is Because," a short story about a teenage mother, Nela, who has dropped out of school to raise her baby and struggles to deal with the baby's combative father, Lando. The story is from a collection currently in progress, tentatively titled "It's All True." "The Reason Is Because" originally appeared in the literary journal "American Short Fiction" and it won Munoz a third O. Henry Award in 2017.
Johanna Skibsrud will read from “Quartet for the End of Time”, a mesmerizing story of four lives irrevocably linked in a single act of betrayal. The novel takes us on an unforgettable journey beginning during the 1930s Bonus Army riots, when World War I veteran Arthur Sinclair is falsely accused of conspiracy and then disappears.
