April 30, 2012
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Barry Kitterman will read from his newest collection of short stories, “From the San Joaquin,” at 7:30 p.m. May 9 in Huber Auditorium in Badgley Hall, Room 102 at EOU.
Copies of the author’s work will be available for purchase and signing following the reading presented by EOU’s Ars Poetica Lecture Series. The event is free and open to the public.
Kitterman grew up in the San Joaquin Valley in California and received his undergraduate degree in English at the University of California at Berkeley. After spending two years in the Peace Corps in Belize, he completed the master of fine arts program at the University of Montana.
Kitterman grew up in the small town of Ivanhoe in the San Joaquin Valley.
Author Robert Garner McBrearty writes, “Kitterman’s stories are humorous and poignant, tender and touching in their memorable depiction of life in small-town California. He renders his characters so authentically and compassionately we feel we know their hopes and fears and dreams, and yet the stories surprise us in the finest ways, taking us beyond where we thought we were first going.”
“From the San Joaquin” follows Kitterman’s novel “The Baker’s Boys,” winner of the 2009 Marla Thomas Peace Corps Writers Award for Fiction.
He has published short and nonfiction in “The Carolina Quarterly,” “Chariton Review,” “Turnstile” and “Flyway,” among others. He is also the fiction editor for “Zone 3 Magazine” and the associate editor of “The Green Hills Literary Lantern” (Truman State University).
Kitterman teaches creative writing at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn. He has also taught at Indiana University East, Miami University of Ohio, and at two Universities in the People’s Republic of China.
