Lafayette College Reading: Brian Bradford
Monday, April 18, 2016 – 4:15pm – 5:00pm
Free to the general public
A recipient of the Henfield Transatlantic Review Award for Fiction, Brian Bradford has published work in numerous small press publications, including New Blood and Black Ice. He has studied fiction at the University of Colorado and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Bradford is a Professor of English at Warren County Community College, where he founded and co-directs the Creative Writing Program. His fellow professor, BJ Ward (judge of the 2014 Jean Corrie Poetry contest and occasional guest here at Lafayette) has described Bradford’s new novel, , as “so good on so many levels.” Ward writes:
Moments throughout this novella tickle and punch at once, and the book itself is part exorcism, part exultation. Welcome to this new church, where the guilty can find a good drink and where laughter is an absolution. For those of us who’ve desired the arrival of a fully-formed voice that’s funny, heartbreaking, and unorthodox at once, Brian Bradford is who we’ve been waiting for.
When not teaching or writing, you will find Bradford in his laboratory working diligently to create environmentally friendly foot deodorants for our astronauts and Olympic Athletes.
