Description

Acclaimed authors, Paul Auster and Siri Hustvedt, will visit campus next Thursday, February 21 during community time (11:30-12:30). They will give a guided, public interview in Viking Theater about their reading and writing practices, much in the style of MPR's "Talking Volumes" series. Ole grad and Twin Cities journalist, Steve Marsh, will serve as moderator.

Additionally, Auster and Hustvedt will give public readings and lectures as part of the collaboration between the St. Olaf English department and Carleton College. These include:

A joint reading of Auster's Winter Journal and Hustvedt's The Summer Without Men at 4:30pm, Wednesday, February 20 at Carleton's Great Hall.
A convocation address by Hustvedt at 10:50am on Friday, February 22 at Carleton's Skinner Chapel.
