Let Us Build Us A City

A Reading with Tracy Daugherty

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Tracy Daugherty is the best-selling author of four novels, six short story collections, two books of essays, and biographies of Donald Barthelme, Joseph Heller, and Joan Didion.  His work has appeared in numerous magazines, including the New Yorker and Vanity Fair.  He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.  He helped establish the MFA Program in Creative Writing at OSU.

LET US BUILD US A CITY  reads like a master class on writing as practice, while performing a deep reading of art and life and looking to discern why liberal education matters so much to our society.   At its core, it is a work of cultural and literary history, a stirring defense and timely renewal of our national literary vision.
