Charles Baxter discusses his new book "Gryphon"

Date: 02/08/2011

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: U of M Bookstore Coffman Memorial Union

Cost: Free


Author and University of Minnesota professor Charles Baxter will discuss his book Gryphon: New and Selected Stories on Tuesday, February 8 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis.

Gryphon brings together the best of Baxter’s previous collections with seven new stories, giving us the most complete portrait of his achievement. Baxter, a self-described “Midwestern writer in a postmodern age”, creates memorable characters who experience the delicate tension between what we want to believe and what we need to believe.

Parade Magazine has chosen Gryphon as a Parade Pick for 2011.

Baxter will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
