The New York University Creative Writing Program’s Fall 2010 Reading Series will feature author Jonathan Safran Foer on Thursday, September 16, 7 p.m. at NYU’s Rosenthal Pavilion, Kimmel Center for University Life, New York University, 60 Washington Square South (at LaGuardia Place), 10th Floor. Subways: 1 (Christopher Street); A, B, C, D, E, F, M (West 4th Street); R, W (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place).

The event is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The reading will be followed by an audience Q&A and book signing. For more information, call 212.998.8816 or visit www.cwp.fas.nyu.edu.

Foer will read from Eating Animals, his first work of nonfiction, published by Little, Brown & Company in 2009 and in paperback by Back Bay Books in September. Synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own investigations, Eating Animals explores the many stories we use to justify our eating habits—folklore and pop culture, family traditions and national myth, apparent facts and inherent fictions.

Foer is the author of the bestselling novels Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Foer, whom Time magazine dubbed a “certified wunderkind,” is a Collegiate Professor and the Lillian Vernon Distinguished Writer-in-Residence in the NYU Creative Writing Program.

The undergraduate and graduate programs provide students with an opportunity to develop their craft while working closely with some of the finest poets and novelists writing today. The Creative Writing Program occupies a townhouse on West 10th Street in the same Greenwich Village neighborhood where so many writers have lived and worked.
