A Fiction Reading by the Novelist Caitlin Horrocks

November 5, 2019

Caitlin Horrocks, the author of the novel The Vexations and the story collection This Is Not Your City, will be at Bradley University's Cullom-Davis Library to meet with students and to give a public reading on Wednesday, November 13, at 7 p.m. in the Wyckoff room.

Ms. Horrocks has published her work in journals such as The New Yorker and Paris Review. Her debut novel, The Vexations, has received rave reviews in The New York Times, National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and elsewhere for her portrayal of the life of the French composer Erik Satie. The highly respected writer Lauren Groff called it “a masterful, profound, sensitive, deeply immersive novel.”

The Visiting Writers Series event is sponsored by the English Department and the Intellectual and Cultural Activities Committee. For more information about this event, please call Claire McQuerry at 309.677.2470 or Thomas Palakeel at 309.677.2477.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
