A Reading by Kseniya Melnik

The George Washington University - Tue, 09/15/2015 - 09:49
September 15, 2015

Thursday, September 24
7:30pm
Gelman Library, Room 702

The 2015 Jenny McKean Moore Writer-in-Residence is Kseniya Melnik, whose debut linked short story collection Snow in May was published in 2014.  The collection was on the short list for the International Dylan Thomas Prize and the long list for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award.  She has been interviewed in a range of venues about her work, including on NPR. Professor Melnik was born in Magadan, Russia, where the stories in Snow in May are set.  Professor Melnik will read from both Snow in May as well as some of her new work. 

The Jenny McKean Moore Fund was established in honor of the late Jenny Moore, who was a playwrighting student at GW and who left in trust a fund that has, for almost forty years, encouraged the teaching and study of Creative Writing in the English Department, allowing us to bring a poet, novelist, playwright, or creative non-fiction writer to campus each year. While in residence, the writer brings a unique experience to the GW community, teaching a free community workshop for adults along with Creative Writing classes for GW students.
