A Reading with Howard Cunnell

Howard Cunnell, Writer in Residence 2017

The Department of English invites you to a reading with writer and visiting professor Howard Cunnell on Tuesday, April 11, at 4:00 p.m. in Rowe 130. Howard Cunnell’s novels are Marine Boy (2008), and The Sea on Fire (2012). He is the contributing editor of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road - The Original Scroll (2007) called by The New York Times “the living version for our time.” Cunnell’s Fathers & Sons - A Memoir, is published by Picador, and is a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week. Tim Winton has said, “There is so much aching love in this book, such pain and beauty. Behold, and rejoice.” The Financial Times called it, “Dazzlingly beautiful...this is truly heart-stopping writing: a unique and hard-won perspective unfolded in lucid and unforgettable prose.” This April, Cunnell is teaching Advanced Creative Writing in the English Department at UNC Charlotte. Please join us in celebrating his work!
