Reading with Visiting Writer Adrianne Harun set for Wednesday

OLLU’s fall 2018 Visiting Writer, Adrianne Harun, will hold a reading on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in 24th Street Theater.

Harun will read from her most recent collection of short stories, “Catch, Release.” Stories from the collection have been noted as “Distinguished Stories” in both “Best American Mystery Stories” and “Best American Short Stories.”

A longtime resident of Port Townsend on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, Harun’s short fiction, essays, and book reviews have been published in numerous magazines and journals, including “Story,” “the Chicago Tribune,” “Narrative Magazine,” “Cincinnati Review,” “Ontario Review,” “The Sun,” “Willow Springs,” and “Colorado Review.”

Her first short story collection, “The King of Limbo” (Houghton Mifflin) was a Sewanee Writing Series selection and a Washington State Book Award finalist.

Her first novel, “A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain,” published by Viking Penguin, won the 2015 Pinckley Prize for Crime Fiction, was shortlisted for the Pacific Northwest Bookseller’s Association Award, and has been named a finalist for the Washington State Book Award.

Harun has worked as an editor for many years and is also a core faculty member of both the Rainier Writing Workshop, an MFA program at Pacific Lutheran University, and the Sewanee School of Letters at the University of the South.

OLLU’s Visiting Writer Program is sponsored by the Edouard Foundation.

This event is free and open to the public.
