Randall Kenan — author of the novel A Visitation of Spirits, a short story collection called Let the Dead Bury Their Dead (finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award), a biography for young-adult readers on the life of James Baldwin, and the book of essays The Fire This Time — is coming to town and back to the University of Memphis, where he's served as a visiting professor of creative writing.

He'll be the closing writer in this fall's River City Writers Series at the University of Memphis on Monday, November 7th, and Tuesday, November 8th. Kenan's reading and booksigning on Monday is inside the University Center Theater (Room 145) at 8 p.m. On Tuesday, an interview with the school's MFA students is in Patterson Hall (Room 456) at 10:30 a.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
