Melanie Hoffert – Visiting Writer

What are the chances?  That’s what Visiting Writer Melanie Hoffert asked in a wonderful essay (How I Broke My Chuck Klosterman Curse) that was published in Publishers Weekly (January 26, 2013).

Melanie HoffertMelanie Hoffert grew up on a farm near Wyndmere and went to high school with Chuck Klosterman, another North Dakota author.  What are the odds that two writers would spring from this tiny farming community?

As a BSC Visiting Writer, Hoffert will be speaking and reading from her work on Thursday, March 21, at 8 p.m. in the National Energy Center of Excellence Basin Electric Auditorium 304.  Don’t miss this event!

We also have Hoffert’s new book at the BSC Library — Prairie Silence: a Memoir.  Check it out!Prairie Silence
