Fredonia visiting writers series to bring author CJ Hauser to campus for craft talk, reading

CJ Hauser

The Mary Louise White Visiting Writers Series will bring CJ Hauser, whose debut novel “The From-Aways” has been described as an irreverent story of family, love, friendships and lobsters set in small-town Maine, to Fredonia.

Ms. Hauser will deliver a fiction craft talk, "Interruptions: Flashbacks, Stories within Stories, and Frames" on Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 4 p.m., in McEwen Hall Room 209, with a reception and book-signing to follow.

She will conduct a reading, also to be followed by a reception and book-signing, in McEwen Hall Room 209 on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 4 p.m.

Both sessions are free and open to the public.

“The From-Aways,” published by William Morrow in 2014, is about two young women who try to find their places in the world. For different reasons, they settle in a small fishing village in Maine and discover purpose, friendship and acceptance as circumstances around them begin to spin out of control. Kirkus Reviews magazine says Hauser’s writing style is expressive, clever and compelling.

Hauser teaches fiction-writing and literature at Colgate University, has a M.F.A. in fiction from Brooklyn College and a B.A. from Georgetown University. Her fiction has been published in Tin House, Narrative Magazine, TriQuarterly, Esquire, Third Coast, The L Magazine, The Brooklyn Review, The Laurel Review, SLICE, Hobart and The Kenyon Review.
