Nystrom and Tilghman to read from new works

Torn Sky A pair of award-winning University writers, poet Debra Nystrom and novelist Christopher Tilghman, will read from their newest books at 8 p.m. Nov. 20 at the U.Va. Bookstore. Both teach in the Creative Writing Program in the English department.

Nystrom’s second collection of poems, “Torn Sky,” was recently published by Sarabande Books. Her poetry has appeared in many anthologies and top journals, including the American Poetry Review, Yale Review, Ploughshares, TriQuarterly and Threepenny Review. She has received prizes from Shenandoah and the Virginia Quarterly Review.

Tilghman is the author of the novel “Mason’s Retreat” and the forthcoming novel, “True Fragments,” as well as two highly praised short story collections, “In a Father’s Place” and “The Way People Run.”

His many awards include a Whiting Writer’s Award and the Ingram Merrill Foundation fiction prize.
