“Welcome Beck” Thursdays, hosted by the English Department and Narrative Journalism, presents “The Home Series”: Jack Shuler and Peter Grandbois. This weekly online series connects Denisonians and the general public with acclaimed writers and reporters.

Shuler is the author of four books including “This is Ohio.” He also co-edited with Michael Croley, “Midland: Reports from the Flyover.” His writing has appeared in The New Republic, Pacific Standard, Christian Science Monitor, and Salon.

Grandbois is the author of twelve books, the most recent of which is “Everything Has Become Birds.” His poems, stories, and essays have appeared in over one hundred journals. His plays have been nominated for several New York Innovative Theatre Awards and have been performed in St. Louis, Columbus, Los Angeles, and New York. He is poetry editor at Boulevard magazine.

In this talk, we enjoy the fine work of beloved professors — and fine writers — Shuler and Grandbois. Join us to hear about their new books and the writing process.

Our “Welcome Beck” Thursdays events are part of the Beck Series, the virtual reading series of Denison University, highlighting the best in fiction, poetry, journalism, and scholarship. This event is funded by the Harriet Ewens Beck Endowment, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and a gift by alumna Sue Douthit O’Donnell, ‘67.
