The McGrath Visiting Writers Series kicks off with Alan DeNiro, author of the short story collection Skinny Dipping in the Lake of the Dead, and the novel Total Oblivion, More or Less. DeNiro, a writer of speculative fiction, has also published an interactive “game novella” online, entitled We are the Firewall. His third book is due out later this fall, a second collection of short stories from Small Beer Press in Easthampton, Mass.

The Tom McGrath Visiting Writers Series brings to campus the finest contemporary writers and is supported by a generous grant from the Solomon Comstock Minneapolis Foundation. All events are free. For more information, contact Kevin Carollo at 218.477.2939 or
