Join us for a reception at 5:30 p.m., followed at 6 p.m. by WSU’s 2023 Distinguished Visiting Writer, Melinda Moustakis as she reads from her new novel. Moustakis’s story collection, "Bear Down, Bear North: Alaska Stories," is set in the rugged landscape where she was born, and received the Flannery O’Connor Award and a 5 Under 35 selection by the National Book Foundation. Her forthcoming novel, "Homestead," has been called a "stunning debut" by Booklist, given a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly, and been praised as follows by NYTimes bestselling author Jess Walter: "Moustakis’s writing is so good, so precise, so strong, and so deeply felt that it immediately creates a sense of time and place."

Writing Now/Reading Now is co-sponsored by the WSU Department of English, Fairmount College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Watermark Books & Café, and the Ulrich Museum of Art.
