Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist of “The Hours,” will read from his work March 22 as the next Peters Rushton Visiting Writer at 8 p.m. in the Chemistry Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Cunningham, who lives in New York City and occasionally teaches writing, has an upcoming novel, “Specimen Days,” coming out in June.

In 1999, Cunningham received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the PEN/Faulkner Award, both for “The Hours.” Not only was the novel made into a movie, but Nicole Kidman, who played Virginia Woolf, took home the Academy Award for best actress.

He has published several other novels, including his first, “A Home at the End of the World,” for which he wrote the screenplay of the 2004 film. His work has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Redbook, Esquire, The Paris Review and The New Yorker. Cunningham also has received several fellowships, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
