The MFA program would like to take a moment to celebrate our friend and neighbor Nina McConigley. Her debut short story collection, Cowboys and East Indians, was recently published by FiveChapters Press. Nina is a UW alumni and teaches in the UW English department. She’s a great supporter of our MFA program and invites us to all her lovely, literary parties (where she serves delicious food, like candy corn!).
Her book is garnering some impressive praise, with mentions in the Casper Star Tribune, Wyoming Public Radio, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and High Country News, and she’s recently published a wonderful essay in the New York Times Magazine. I definitely recommend it.
Nina will be hosting a reading and book launch event at the University tomorrow night, and would like you to attend (we’ll all be there):
Where: Coe Library 506
When: 7:30 pm, Thursday, November 21!
