Following Tom Sleigh's reading on September 30, the Raymond Carver Reading Series continues its 2015 season with poet Daniel Torday on Wednesday, October 14.

A 2007 graduate of Syracuse's Creative Writing M.F.A. program, Daniel Torday is the author of the novels The Last Flight of Poxl West (St. Martin’s Press, 2015) and The Sensualist (Nouvella Books, 2012), the latter of which is winner of the National Jewish Book Award for “Outstanding Debut Fiction.” His stories and essays have appeared in such major outlets as The New York Times, Esquire, and Paris Review Daily. A former Esquire editor, he is an editor at the Kenyon Review, and is director of the Creative Writing Program at Bryn Mawr College, near Philadelphia.  

“A gifted storyteller, he is a thought-provoking, complex, and hilarious writer in the tradition of Philip Roth and Michael Chabon,” says Sarah Harwell.

The reading starts Wednesday, October 14 at 5:30 p.m. in Gifford Auditorium with a Q&A beginning at 3:45. The event is free and open to the public.
