MFA Alumni Homecoming, Fall for the Book

Thursday, September 10, 2020 7:00 PM

Come back to George Mason (virtually) this fall as alumni of the Creative Writing MFA Program gather to read selections from their latest prose and poetry. Jessica Anthony’s all-in-one ghost story, love story, and political satire, Enter the Aardvark, explores the secrets we keep from ourselves. In How to Be a Family: The Year I Dragged My Kids Around the World to Find a New Way to Be Together, Dan Kois shares his story of, in his words, “the various ways I screwed it up, and what we learned.” Mystery writer Art Taylor presents a collection of 16 short stories, highlighting twenty-five years of his award-winning work in The Boy Detective & The Summer of ’74 and Other Tales of Suspense. Elizabeth Deanna Morris Lakes will read from her new book of poetry, Ashley Sugarnotch & the Wolf, wherein she explores what it means to be caught in a cycle of violence.
