Readings are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
The Stokes Center for Creative Writing and the Independent Music Collective are teaming up for a very special event on Monday, February 26, 2018 at Laidlaw Performing Arts Center. Darnielle will be the inaugural performer in an exciting new series exploring the intersection of music and literature. Not only is he the central figure behind the indie-folk juggernaut the Mountain Goats, but he's also the author of two critically-acclaimed novels: Wolf in White Van, which was longlisted for the National Book Award in 2014, and Universal Harvester, which Kazuo Ishiguro calls "a moving, beautifully etched picture of America’s lost and profoundly lonely." The event will feature both a musical performance and a reading.
