Did you enjoy the Literary Reading Series last semester?
Or you haven’t heard of it?
Don’t miss it this spring semester!
Each semester, distinguished poets, writers and translators from around the world take part in the Literary Reading Series at NYU Shanghai. All the featured books are displayed in the Library’s Spotlight section.
Robin Hemley, for example, will be the first guest speaker to present this semester. His popular craft book, Turning Life into Fiction, has sold over 80,000 copies.
We will also have Tse Hao Guang, the author of Deeds of Light (2015), which shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize 2016, and Daryl Lim Wei Jie, a poet and critic. His work won him the Golden Point Award in English Poetry in 2015.
If you are interested in reading any of the 2018 Spring Literary Reading Series books that have been or will be presented on campus by authors, you can easily find their works in the Spotlight section. Feel free to browse and check out! Remember, you can keep the books up to two weeks and renew once.
