Fall Reading Series Launched at UW-River Falls

Michael Fedo will be reading from his book, "Indians in the Arborvitae," 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12, on the second floor of Chalmer Davee Library on the UW-River Falls campus. This event launches the beginning of the Library Breezeway fall reading series, a free public event.

"Indians in the Arborvitae" is a story depicting the misadventures in the life of Richard Fundy, who rebuilds his life with the help of his father, Elwood. Fedo is the author of six books including "The Man From Lake Wobegon," "One Shining Season," and "The Lynchings in Duluth." Fedo has also been published in "American Way," "The North American Review," and "The Los Angeles Times Book Review."

The Library Breezeway has been holding readings since 1996. Two to three visiting authors and about three students read each year. Visiting authors sell and sign his or her publications after the event. Student readings are open to anyone at the University and are encouraged to sign up in the English Department, which sponsors these events.

Future Library Breezeway readings include: Sept. 26, Grant Tracey, reading from his collection of short stories, "Parallel Lines and the Hockey Universe," and Oct. 10, Jane Jeong Trenka, reading from her memoir, "Language of Blood." Three student readings will be held Oct. 31, Nov. 21, and Dec. 5. All are free and open to the public.
