Author featured in Big Dog Reading Series

BLOOMSBURG— Author Justin Torres will be reading his work as a part of Bloomsburg University's Big Dog Reading Series on Wednesday, April 5, at 7 p.m. in the Greenly Center lecture room in downtown Bloomsburg. This program is free and open to the public.

A national best seller, We the Animals has been translated into 15 languages and is being adapted to film. “Torres plunges us into the chaotic heart of one family, the intense bonds of three brothers, and the mythic effects of this fierce love on the people we must become,” writes Amazon.

Torres was a Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard and a Cullman Center Fellow at the New York Public Library. He was named one of 2012’s “5 Under 35” by the National Book Foundation.

The Greenly Center is located at 50 E. Main Street, Downtown Bloomsburg. The Big Dog Reading Series, sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, hosts regionally and nationally known poets and writers to campus.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 9,600 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
