      The Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program presents M. Randal O’Wain, who will read from Meander Belt. "A tour de force of white working-class identity married to a writer's imaginative hunger for words. What makes this book remarkable is the narrator's steely tension between his innate desire for unknown worlds and the pullback to the roughed up Wild West of Memphis, where a hardworking but wounded father has planted the seeds of loyalty."--Patricia Foster

      O'Wain earned his MFA from Iowa's Nonfiction Writing Program. He is the author of the short story collection Hallelujah Station and has been published in Oxford American, Hotel Amerika, Crazyhorse, and Guernica. He teaches creative writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and serves as a NEA Writing Fellow at the Beckley Federal Correctional Institution. A reception in the cafe sponsored by the NWP will follow.
