Margot Livesey Novelist Margot Livesey to be here beginning of April

Margot Livesey, a Scottish-born novelist whose suspenseful tales have been described as straddling the dark edge of the psychological-thriller genre, will present a reading and a talk as the Rea Visiting Writer at U.Va. the first week of April.

The author of the highly praised novels The Missing World, Criminals and Homework, Livesey will speak on the craft of fiction April 2 and read from her work April 5. Both events will be at 8 p.m. in the University Bookstore.

Currently a writer-in-residence at Emerson College in Massachusetts, Livesey has also published a collection of short stories, Learning by Heart. She has garnered critical acclaim for the plotting, characterization and psychological depth of her work.

The Rea Visiting Writer program in U.Va.'s English department is sponsored by the Dungannon Foundation and the Henry Hoyns Fund. During a week-long visit, Livesey will work with students in the department's graduate Creative Writing Program.
