WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — T. Coraghessan Boyle, internationally recognized author of 22 fiction novels, will speak March 29 as part of the Purdue Libraries Distinguished Lecture Series.

Boyle’s talk will be at 7:00p in Stewart Center’s Fowler Hall on the West Lafayette campus. It is free and open to the public. After his talk, he will participate in a book sale and sign copies of his books. His engagement was originally scheduled for last September, but he had to postpone.

Boyle’s most recent novels include “Talk Talk” in 2006, “The Women” in 2009 and “Wild Child” this year. His latest book, “When the Killing’s Done,” was released last month.

Boyle has been an English department faculty member at the University of Southern California since 1978. He holds a doctorate in 19th century British literature from the University of Iowa, a master’s degree from the same university and a bachelor’s degree in English and history from SUNY Potsdam.

His stories have appeared in national and international magazines, including The New Yorker, Harper’s, Esquire, The Atlantic Monthly, The Paris Review, GQ and McSweeney’s.

Conor Broughan, a master’s of fine arts candidate and fiction editor of the Sycamore Review, Purdue’s award-winning national literary journal, will introduce the author at the lecture.

The Purdue Libraries Distinguished Lecture series began in 2005 to bring people with notable creative and intellectual achievements to speak at the university. In addition to Purdue Libraries, this year’s sponsors include the Office of the Provost, College of Liberal Arts, Department of English and master of fine arts program in creative writing.

The event is free and open to the public.
