Acclaimed novelist to read from his work, Nov. 17

Short-story writer and novelist Jonathan Safran Foer will read from his work at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.

The 1999 Princeton alumnus is the author of the debut novel, "Everything Is Illuminated" (2002), which grew out of his creative writing senior thesis project. It won several literary prizes, including the National Jewish Book Award and Guardian First Book Award, and has been published in 24 countries. His second novel, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," is due to be published in the spring.

Foer will be introduced at the reading by faculty member Joyce Carol Oates , who was one of his thesis advisers. The event is part of the Creative Writing Program's Althea Ward Clark Reading Series.
