Please join the Queens College MFA in Creative Writing and Translation for a visit by Kia Corthron. Although you may know her for her career writing for theatre and television (she wrote for a little TV show called The Wire) she’ll be reading from her debut novel, The Castle Cross the Magnet Carter. After, a Q&A session will be facilitated by QC’s own Maaza Mengiste, followed by light refreshments in the lobby of the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Queens College.

See you there!
