Short-story writer and poet Nick Healy comes to MSUM Thursday, Nov. 15, to read from his work and discuss the writing process. The event takes place at 4:30 p.m. in Comstock Memorial Union, Room 101.

Healy’s work has appeared in North American Review, Water~Stone Review, and Great River Review. In 2005, Healy’s story And Other Delights won the Speakeasy Prize from The Loft Literary Center/Speakeasy magazine, and several years later another story, Uncle Ed’s Packard, was selected for the Tamarack Award from Minnesota Monthly.

Healy’s first book, It Takes You Over, was a winner of New Rivers Press’ Many Voices Project award, a distinguished annual contest that since 1981 has recognized the work of emerging voices in fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Kevin Carollo at 218.477.2939 or
