Meet McMaster’s new Writer-in-Residence- Wed. Oct. 22

The McMaster community and members of the public are invited to join new Writer-in-Residence, Hal Niedzviecki, this Wednesday for a welcome reception and reading to take place at the Hamilton Public Library, Central Branch.

Niedzviecki was recently named the Mabel Pugh Taylor Writer-in-Residence, co-sponsored by McMaster and the Hamilton Public Library and will divide his time equally between the Dept. of English and Cultural Studies, and Hamilton Public Library, consulting one-on-one with apprentice writers in the community, and devoting approximately 60% of his time to his own writing, an important goal of the Residency program.

Niedzviecki is author of The Peep Diaries, named one of Oprah’s “25 Books You Can’t Put Down.” He is also a writer, speaker, culture commentator and editor, whose work challenges preconceptions and confronts readers with the offenses of everyday life. He is the author of 8 books of fiction and non-fiction and is the founder and publisher of Broken Pencil: the magazine of zine culture and the independent arts.

Please join us in welcoming Hal as our Writer-in-Residence.

When: Wednesday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Hamilton Public Library Central Branch, 5th Floor Board Room
