New Yorker contributing fiction writers Donald Antrim and Gary Shteyngart will read from their work, then talk with the magazine's fiction editor, Deborah Treisman. Book signings to follow.
Antrim is the author most recently of The Afterlife: A Memoir (2006). Shteyngart caused an instant sensation with his 2003 debut novel, The Russian Debutante's Handbook, and received kudos for his sophomore followup, Absurdistan.
On November 21 and 22, Internet access in Moffitt Library will be unavailable while work is done to upgrade the network and provide faster Internet access throughout the building.
On both days, we anticipate work will be done from 6 am - noon. Circulation services will be closed during this time, and users may need to check out Moffitt Library books through the Doe Circulation desk. The Information Gateway reference desk will be closed all day on both dates.
Signs will be posted at service points in the building to update library users about the status of Internet access at public workstations and through the AirBears wireless access.
