He will be rescheduled for the Spring 12 semester!

Alexander MacLeod, professor at St. Mary’s University in Halifax, will be reading from his collection of short stories, Light Lifting, on Wednesday, November 30th, 2011, at the Hammes Bookstore on Notre Dame’s campus.

The reading begins at 7:30 PM.

Alexander MacLeod was born in Inverness, Cape Breton and raised in Windsor, Ontario. His first collection of short stories, Light Lifting (Biblioasis 2010), was shortlisted for the Giller Prize, the Commonwealth Prize, two Atlantic Book Awards, and went on to become a national bestseller. Alexander holds degrees from the University of Windsor, the University of Notre Dame, and McGill; he currently lives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and teaches at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax.

According to the publisher Biblioasis, “Alexander MacLeod’s long-awaited debut offers us a suite of darkly urban and unflinching elegies. These are elemental stories of work and its bonds, of tragedy and tragedy barely averted, but also of beauty, love and fragile understanding.” 

The reading is free and open to the public.
