Writing University streams 'Paul's Book Club' June 8
The University of Iowa's Writing University website, http://www.writinguniversity.org, will provide a live stream of "Paul's Book Club" at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 8. The stream will originate in a free event with Paul Ingram and his audience in Prairie Lights Books, 15 S. Dubuque St. in downtown Iowa City.
The discussion will focus on "Do the Windows Open?" by O. Henry Prize winner Julie Hecht. Each of the nine humorous stories, documenting the mania of modern life, is narrated by the same neurotic photographer.
Hecht is also the author of the novel "The Unprofessionals," the short-story collection "Happy Trails to You" and the interview/profile "Was This Man a Genius? Talks With Andy Kaufman."
In 2007 Ingram was a winner in the James Patterson PageTurner Awards, created and funded by bestselling author James Patterson to recognize individuals, companies, schools and other institutions that find original and effective ways to promote the excitement of books.
