March 24, 2003-- Prize-winning novelist Richard Bausch, professor of creative writing at George Mason University, will present a reading and a talk as the Rea Visiting Writer in fiction at the University of Virginia next week.

Bausch, author of eight novels and five story collections, will give an informal talk on the craft of fiction Monday, March 31, and will read from his work Wednesday, April 2. Both events are open to the public and will take place at 8 p.m. at the U.Va. Bookstore.

Published to wide critic acclaim, Bausch’s most recent novels include “Hello to the Cannibals,” “In the Night Season,” and “Good Evening Mr. And Mrs. America and All the Ships at Sea.”

His stories have appeared in such magazines the Atlantic, the New Yorker, Esquire and Harper’s and have been selected for the annual “O. Henry Prize Stories” and “Best American Short Stories” collections. The “Selected Stories of Richard Bausch” was published in 1996.

Bausch will meet with U.Va. students during his week-long visit as the Rea Visiting Writer in the English department’s Creative Writing Program.
