Award-winning author Percival Everett will give a fiction reading followed by a book signing and reception on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at 6:00 p.m. in the University of South Alabama’s Student Center Ballroom. Everett has published more than thirty books, including Dr. NO, The Trees, Telephone, So Much Blue, I Am Not Sidney Poitier, and Erasure. Among his awards are the Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Book Critics Circle, the Dos Passos Prize, the PEN Center USA Award for Fiction, the PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Literary Award, and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for Fiction. In their remarks on Everett’s fiction, reviewers often cite his satirical brilliance and genre-defying work, work that expands our culture’s ways of thinking. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Everett is currently Distinguished Professor of English at University of Southern California. This event is free and open to the public.
