Ben Marcus: In Conversation with Vu Tran

Logan Center, Seminar Terrace Room 801

Award-winning novelist and short fiction writer Ben Marcus appears in conversation with Vu Tran as part of the Kestnbaum Family Writer-in-Residence Program. Together, they’ll discuss the wide aesthetic range—from complex linguistic play to more conventionally propulsive narrative forms—in Marcus’s work and how he went about assembling his most recent story collection, Leaving the Sea.  Tran is an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Arts in the Department of English at the University of Chicago.

Presented by the Kestnbaum Family Writer-in-Residence Program and the Committee on Creative Writing.
