FICTION WRITER TO READ STORIES AT PITT-BRADFORD OCT. 27

Dr. Jody Lisberger

BRADFORD, Pa. – Author Jody Lisberger, who has had her short stories published in various anthologies and whose first collection was just released, will read from her fiction on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

She will read at noon in the Mukaiyama University Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons as part of the university’s Spectrum Series. A question-and-answer session, reception and book signing will follow.

“I like her stories’ complex and layered portraits of characters who discover that nothing is ever quite as it seems their wordplay and the risks they take with language and form,” said Dr. Nancy McCabe, associate professor of writing at Pitt-Bradford. “In addition to writing terrific stories, Jody is also a warm person and good teacher who I think will inspire and encourage beginning writers.”

Lisberger’s story collection “Remember Love” was published in May 2008. Her stories have appeared in “Fugue,” “Michigan Quarterly Review,” “Thema,” “Confrontation” and “The Louisville Review.”

In 2003, she took third place in the “American Literary Review” fiction contest and was a finalist in the 2004 “Quarterly West” fiction competition.

She earned a doctorate in English from Boston University and served in the low-residency master of fine arts in the writing program at Vermont College.

Lisberger has taught for more than 25 years at the University of Rhode Island, Brown, Harvard, Tufts, Holy Cross and Boston universities. She is director of Women’s Studies at URI.

More information about the Spectrum Series is available by contacting Patty Colosimo, assistant director of arts programming, at (814) 362-5155.
