The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at Murray State University will host a reading by fiction writer Marlin Barton on Monday, Jan. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Waterfield Library Gallery on Murray State's campus. A book-signing and reception will follow the reading. This event is free and open to the public.
The recipient of the 2016 Truman Capote Prize for short fiction, Barton has published two collections of short stories, "The Dry Well" and "Dancing by the River," in addition to two novels, "A Broken Thing" and "The Cross Garden." His stories have appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies, including "Shenandoah," "The Southern Review," "The Sewanee Review," "Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards" and "The Best American Short Stories." His most recent collection of short stories is "Pasture Art," which Publishers Weekly called "a captivating third collection . . . (r)eminiscent of Larry Brown's gritty Southern storytelling."
