LBCC Valley Writers Series Hosts Author Jed Wyman

The Valley Writers Series at Linn-Benton Community College will host a reading by Corvallis author and LBCC composition instructor Jed Wyman on Wednesday, May 11 at Noon in the Calapooia Center building, Cascade View room CC-203, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

Wyman will be reading from a recent collection of short stories. He attended Bard College in New York and the University of Montana in Missoula, where he earned his MA in history. In 2009, Wyman received his MFA in Creative Writing from OSU and is currently a composition instructor at LBCC.

Prior to teaching at LBCC, he taught for two summers in Kenya. Wyman has also spent nine summers working on a trail crew in Sequoia National Park where he lived in a little green tent and rode a big red horse named Tabasco. His favorite authors include John Steinbeck, Jerzy Kosinski, Graham Greene, Tobias Wolff, Russell Banks, and Charles Bukowski.

The Valley Writers Series is sponsored by the LBCC English Department and exists to connect beginning writers with professional writers and to stimulate creative writing among area students, to enhance literary awareness in our community, and to encourage Oregon writers.

Valley Writers Series is free and open to the public. For questions about this event or suggestions for future events, contact Jane White at whitej@linnbenton.edu or Lucette Wood at woodl@linnbenton.edu.
