Right off the heels of AWP, the excitement keeps coming! Highly acclaimed writer, Bruce Machart, whose debut novel, The Wake of Forgiveness, will be reading from his work, at 5pm, this Monday (February 7th), 18 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago. Coffee and treats and nice conversation will be at 4:30!
Bruce Machart's fiction has been published in some of the country's biggest literary magazines, including Zoetrope: All-Story, Story, One Story, Five Points, and Glimmer Train! He has a short story collection, called Men in the Making, coming out this year from HMH.
The Wake of Forgiveness has been described by author and editor, Hannah Tinti, as such: “In The Wake of Forgiveness, Bruce Machart tells a story of fathers and sons that stretches wide across the Texas landscape, leaving behind its own beautiful wake of remembrance, inheritance, and the unbreakable bonds of family.”
Great blurb, Hannah! We are so excited to have Bruce here! Be excited to and join us this Monday!
