Morgan Talty Presents Online Tomorrow at 6pm

The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine is hosting a virtual evening of reading and conversation with Morgan Talty on Tuesday, November 21st from 6–7:30. 

Talty’s breakout story collection Night of the Living Rez has won widespread critical acclaim, becoming a national bestseller and winner of the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize, National Book Critics Circle John Leonard Prize, American Academy of Arts & Letters Sue Kaufman Prize, The New England Book Award, the National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Honoree, and a finalist for the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Fiction, the Chautauqua Prize 2023, and Barnes & Noble Discover Book Prize. Night of the Living Rez grew out of a love of oral storytelling, structuring the stories into written form and intertwining a myriad of characters and events. 

A citizen of the Penobscot Indian Nation, where he grew up, Talty is an assistant professor of English at the University of Maine and a prose editor at The Massachusetts Review.
