Walter Mosley 2010

Walter_Mosley

The Boston Globe celebrates him as “one of this nation’s finest writers.” The Austin Chronicle calls him “one of the most humane, insightful, powerful prose stylists working today in any genre….also one of the most radical.” Each novel he publishes, says The Philadelphia Inquirer, “is an event, a literary feast for lovers of the written word. . . . There are few contemporary writers as consistently fine….” Writing in The New Yorker, Ben Greenman observes, “All his works share an abiding interest in the moral dimensions of everyday life….”

The Marygrove College Department of English and Modern Languages is pleased to announce that mystery writer, novelist, and social commentator Walter Mosley will be the twenty-second guest—and the first mystery writer— in its Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series. He will deliver the Lillian and Donald Bauder Lecture at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 16, 2010 in Alumnae Hall. Afterward, he will sign copies of his works, which will be available for purchase.
