Ian Frazier Reading Wednesday for Kelly Writers Series
Humorist and travel writer Ian Frazier will do a reading on DePauw’s campus Wednesday evening at 7:30. He is the first writer to visit in this semester’s Kelly Writers Series line-up. Associate Professor of English Peter Graham said the faculty committee said Frazier was chosen last year. Frazier has published twelve books and his writing frequently appears in the New Yorker. His most recent book, Travels in Siberia, chronicles a series of trips he made to western Russia. Graham hopes students in all majors will attend and develop an appreciation of Frazier’s work.
GRAHAM:I think this would appeal to students across the board, whether they’re interested in poetry, fiction or non-fiction they could come just to hear the beauty of this guy’s prose.
The event will take place in Thompson Recital Hall in the Green Center for the Performing Arts. It is free and open to the public.
