Richard Ford, the 2010 Michener Residency Award author, will speak at 7:30 p.m., Thurs, Feb. 4, in the Avaya Auditorium, ACES 2.302.

He is the author of six novels—including “A Piece of My Heart,”  “The Sportswriter,”  “Independence Day,” “Wildlife,” and “The Lay of the Land”—and three story collections: “Rock Springs,” “Women with Men,” and  “A Multitude of Sins.”

He received the Pulitzer Prize in fiction and the PEN/Faulkner Award for “Independence Day” in 1995. In 2001, he was honored with the PEN/Malamud for excellence in short fiction. The New York Times hails him “One of the most compelling and eloquent storytellers of his generation.”

During his three week residency at The University of Texas at Austin, he will work with students in the Michener Center for Writers’ Masters of Fine Arts program.
