Autograph Series presents writers of national and international stature—many of them recipients of major prizes such as the Pulitzer or National Book Award—in free public performances followed by an audience Q&A and book signing. Ours is one of the few such series in the nation offered to the public at no cost. Autograph Series is partially supported by a ticketed colloquium luncheon with the visiting writer. Previous Autograph writers include Margaret Atwood, U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, Ha Jin, Edward P. Jones, Tim O’Brien, Grace Paley, Philip Levine, Luis Alberto Urrea, and Terrance Hayes, among others.

Don’t miss this chance to get up close and personal with New York Times bestselling writer Ben Fountain. Known for his “wicked sense of humor” and “razor-sharp insight,” Fountain interrogates every aspect of American life, from presidential campaigns to NFL Sunday, food fads, and our media glorification of war.

A former practicing attorney, Ben Fountain is the author of Brief Encounters with Che Guevara, which won the PEN/Hemingway Award and the Barnes & Noble Discover Award for Fiction, and the novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, winner of the National Book Critics’ Circle Award and a National Book Award finalist. Adapted into a feature film by director Ang Lee, Billy Lynn has been called the “The Catch-22 of the Iraq War.” Fountain’s series of essays published in The Guardian on the 2016 U.S. presidential election became his 2018 masterpiece: Beautiful Country Burn Again. Fountain’s work has been translated into over twenty languages.

Join us for Ben Fountain’s workshop, Four Ways to Develop as a Fiction Writer, on Sat, April 17, 2021.
