The Lindsay J. Cropper Memorial Writers Series with Dennis M. Clausen, fiction writer, will be held on Thursday, Nov. 8, 6 p.m. in Mother Rosalie Hill Hall, Warren Auditorium. A Q&A, book signing and dessert reception will follow the reading.

Dennis M. Clausen has been a professor of American literature and screenwriting at the University of San Diego for forty-six years. His novel, The Accountant’s Apprentice, his first literary project set in San Diego, was recently selected as a “First Place” recipient in the 2016 Cygnus Awards category sponsored by the Chanticleer International Book Awards competitions. The novel is scheduled for publication by Sunbury Press this fall. Some of his other published works include Screenwriting and Literature (2009), published by Kendall-Hunt, that explores the relationships between screenwriting and novel writing. Mid-List Press published Prairie Son (1999), a book of creative nonfiction that has been taught in many schools and colleges. Dave Woods, Past Vice-President of the National Book Critics Circle, wrote, “Prairie Son, the winner of the 1999 First Series Creative Nonfiction Award, attracted all manner of national attention, a consummation devoutly to be wished for by a small publisher.” Prairie Son was nominated for several major book awards, and the University of Minnesota voted it one of the “five most favorite books published in 1999 by a University of Minnesota alumnus.”

This reading is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Cropper Center for Creative Writing.
