Steve Martin to read from work, Oct. 5
Posted September 28, 2005; 05:55 p.m.
Steve Martin -- perhaps best known as an actor and comedian -- will read from his work at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, in McCosh 50. He will be introduced by Joyce Carol Oates, the Roger S. Berlind '52 Professor in the Humanities.
In addition to performing, Martin has written many screenplays and two novellas. He recently completed work on a Touchstone Pictures film, "Shopgirl," adapted from his first novella of the same name. He produced, wrote and starred in the film, which opens Oct. 21 and also features Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman.
The event is part of the Creative Writing Program's Althea Ward Clark Reading Series.
