Fall 2018 Creative Writing Reading Series: Lindsay Hunter and Matthew Rohrer

Columbia College Chicago presents the Fall 2018 Creative Writing Reading Series. This reading will begin with a student reader and end with a Q&A session. Selected titles will be available for sale.

Lindsay Hunter’s latest novel Eat Only When You’re Hungry was a finalist for the 2017 Chicago Review of Books Fiction Award and a 2017 NPR Great Read. The Huffington Post called it “a story that hits a note that’s been missing from the chorus of existing feminist literature.” She is the author of the novel Ugly Girls and the short story collections Daddy’s and Don’t Kiss Me, which was named one of Amazon’s 10 Best Books of the Year: Short Stories. She lives in Chicago.  

Matthew Rohrer is the author of nine books of poems, most recently The Others, which won the 2018 Believer Book Award. A Green Light was shortlisted for the Griffin International Poetry Prize and his first book, A Hummock in the Malookas, was a winner in the 1994 National Poetry Series and selected by Publishers Weekly as a Best Book of the Year. He lives in Brooklyn and teaches writing at NYU.
