A Reading by Bard Fiction Prize Recipient Brian Conn

Monday, March 4, 2013

Bard Fiction Prize recipient Brian Conn will read from recent work.

This event is free and open to the public.

Brian Conn received the Bard Fiction Prize for his debut novel, The Fixed Stars (Fiction Collective 2, 2010). Centered on the John’s Day celebration of a small community, Conn’s experimental science fiction novel is set in a world that has retreated from urbanism into the pastoral, where citizens afflicted by a mysterious plague are routinely quarantined and reintegrated into society in rituals marked by a haunting brutality. His work has appeared in both genre and literary magazines, and The Fixed Stars was one of amazon.com’s ten best science fiction and fantasy books of 2010. He is a graduate of Yale University, with an M.F.A. from Brown University, where he began writing The Fixed Stars and cofounded Birkensnake, a fiction annual, with Joanna Ruocco. He lives in California.
