The Frequency North writers series at The College of Saint Rose hosts the first visiting author of the season: Rick Moody.

Moody will read at 7:30pm on Thursday, September 26 in the Standish Rooms, second floor of the Events and Activities Center, 940 Western Avenue. The reading is free and open to the public. Copies of the authors’ latest works will be available for purchase and signing.

Rick Moody’s most recent books include the novel The Four Fingers of Death and On Celestial Music, a collection of music writing. Other books include Purple America, a novel;  Black Veil: A Memoir with Digressions, winner of the PEN Martha Albrand prize for excellence in memoir. Moody’s first novel, Garden State, was published in 1992. His second novel, The Ice Storm (Little Brown 1994), was made into a film directed by Ang Lee in 1997. Moody’s short fiction and journalism have been anthologized widely, and his radio pieces have appeared on NPR and at the Third Coast International Audio Festival. His band, The Wingdale Community Singers, in which he plays and write lyrics, have released three albums.

This event was funded in part by Poets & Writers, Inc. with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
