The Best of LSU Fiction 

click to enlarge events_rec-1.jpg

The proliferation of university writing programs maintains a steady place for authors of fiction on campus. For students, that may also offer another link between their surroundings and the pages they study. Judy Kahn describes that relationship as a source of inspiration for the new collection of stories she co-edited, The Best of LSU Fiction. LSU has been home in one way or another (faculty, student, etc.) to a wide array of popular writers, from the literary giants Robert Penn Warren (All the King's Men) and Walker Percy (The Moviegoer) to short story writers Peter Taylor and Jean Stafford to Rebecca Weils (Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood) and Andrei Codrescu. It also includes young and emerging writers who teach at the school. There are entries for more than 20 writers with brief bios on their relationship to the university and short works. The reading and signing at Garden District Book Shop features contributors Allen Wier and Moira Crone and editors Kahn and Nolde Alexius. — Will Coviello
