Author Brian Hall plans fiction reading

Brian Hall will read from his soon-to-be published fiction work, which deals with Robert Frost and the Cuban Missile Crisis, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 3 in the library's Geneva Room.

He is the author of the 2003 novel about the Lewis and Clark expedition, “I Should Be Extremely Happy In Your Company.” Born and raised in the Boston area, he earned his bachelor's degree at Harvard and went on to write three non-fiction works and two previous novels.

His writing has also appeared in The New Yorker, Time, Granta and The New York Times Magazine.

Hall, who lives in Ithaca with his wife and two daughters, also spoke on campus in February 1999, after the publication of an earlier book.

The reading, sponsored by Writers Reading and the Faculty Speaker's Fund, is free and open to the public. Copies of the Lewis and Clark book and “Madeleine's World: A Biography of a Three-Year-Old,” are now available in The College Store.
