The Roosevelt Fall Reading Series continues on November 7 with visiting author Odie Lindsey. Lindsey will read from his short story collection, We Come to Our Senses, recently published by W.W.Norton. In this collection of linked stories described as artful by Booklist and sharp by The New York Times Book Review, Lindsey brings voice to returning veterans as they confront the curious realities of Southern contemporary life as seen through a post-combat lens.
Odie Lindsey’s work has appeared in Best American Short Stories Guernica, Iowa Review, Electric Literature, Fourteen Hills, and elsewhere.
Please join us at 5:00 pm on November 7th in Room 700 of the Gage Building, 18 South Michigan Avenue. Light refreshments will be served.
