Tracy Daugherty: Hiding Man
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and remain closed on Thursday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday.
Author Tracy Daugherty discusses Hiding Man, his new biography of Donald Barthelme, on Thursday, September 17, at 7 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
Barthelme, who came to prominence as the leader of the postmodern movement, was a fixture at The New Yorker, publishing more than 100 short stories, but he is best-known for his classic novels Snow White and The Dead Father.
Daugherty is currently a professor of English at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
The event is the first in the 2009-10 Writers at Work series organized by Kansas City novelist Whitney Terrell and co-sponsored by Chris Davis and the English Department at UMKC.
Admission is free. A 6:30 p.m. reception precedes the event. Click here or call 816.701.3407 to RSVP. Free parking is available in the Library District Parking Garage at 10th and Baltimore.
