Short-story author Adam Prince will read from his work on April 8 as part of the Writers in the Library series.

The reading begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Hodges Library Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

Prince is a former UT graduate student and teaching assistant. His first book, The Beautiful Wishes of Ugly Men, was published last year. The men in the short-story collection must find a balance between imagination and reality.

His work has appeared in the Missouri Review, the Southern Review, and Narrative magazine. Narrative named him one of the best twenty new writers of 2011.

Born in southern California, he has since lived in New York, South Korea, Arkansas, and Nicaragua. He now lives in Baltimore, where he is the 2012–2013 Tickner Writing Fellow at the Gilman School.

Prince is currently working on a novel set in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Writers in the Library is sponsored by UT Libraries and the Creative Writing Program in association with the John C. Hodges Better English Fund. For more information e-mail Marilyn Kallet, director of UT’s Creative Writing Program, or Christopher Hebert, writer in residence at UT Libraries.
