The celebrated writer Margaret Atwood, author of prize-winning novels and many other books including poetry and nonfiction, will appear Sunday afternoon at UNO's south campus, in an event open to the public.
Doors open at 12:30 p.m. for the reading at the Scott Conference Center at 6450 Pine St., and Atwood is scheduled to speak at 1 p.m. followed by discussion.
The list of publications by the author from Canada includes children's books, small press editions, scripts, a play, and books edited. Her work has appeared in many literary journals and has been translated into more than 40 languages.
The Omaha World-Herald published this short email interview of Atwood last week, and the winter 1993 issue of Prairie Schooner, a journal published at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, published a four-page interview focusing on her novel "Cat's Eye."
