Novelist And Story Writer Christopher Tilghman Will Read Feb. 28

February 13, 2001-- Christopher Tilghman, a visiting writer at the University of Virginia this semester who is widely praised as one of America’s finest fiction writers, will read from his work Feb. 28 at the U.Va. Bookstore.

Author of the novel "Mason’s Retreat" and story collections "In a Father's Place" and "The Way People Run," Tilghman will read at 8 p.m. in the bookstore mezzanine. The event is free and open to the public.

Tilghman’s work, which has appeared in the New Yorker and other magazines and several times in the annual "Best American Short Stories" collections, has been acclaimed for its depictions of people’s inner lives and emotional connections and for its vivid sense of place, including the Chesapeake Bay region and the West.

Writer-in-residence at Emerson College in Massachusetts, he is teaching this semester in the U.Va. Creative Writing Program in the Department of English. He is a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Whiting Writer's Award and the Ingram Merrill Foundation Award.
