Some news via the Office of Public Information —
The University of Tampa will welcome author Michael Martone on Thursday, Sept. 20, to open the 2012-2013 Writers at the University series. The reading will be held at 7 p.m. in the Scarfone/Hartley Gallery on campus and is free and open to the public.
Martone is best known for his “false biographies” — his 2005 book, Michael Martone, is a collection of fake contributor’s notes that were all published separately as true contributor’s notes in various literary journals. His most recent works include Four for a Quarter and Racing in Place: Collages, Fragments, Postcards, Ruins, collections of stories that walk the line between fiction and nonfiction. Martone is a professor of creative writing at the University of Alabama, where he has been teaching since 1996.
