Visiting Writer Aryn Kyle at Brookdale Oct. 10

Best - selling novelist and short story writer Aryn Kyle will be at Brookdale October 10 at 7:00pm.

Brookdale Community College’s celebrated Visited Writers Series for Fall 2012 will host best-selling novelist and short story writer Aryn Kyle on Wednesday, October 10 at 7:00 p.m. The reading will be held in the Warner Student Life Center Navesink room I.

Aryn Kyle was born in Peoria, Illinois, and grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado. Her debut novel, The God of Animals was an international bestseller and the winner of an American Library Association’s Alex Award, a PNBA Award, an MPIBA Award, and others.

Her new story collection, Boys and Girls Like You and Me (Scribner), reviewed by Vogue magazine, “captures millennial adolescence and features young women making their way in an America of stultifying suburban sameness—strip shopping malls, generically named apartment complexes—who go to ruthless lengths to get what they want, sleeping with married men and betraying everyone, most of all themselves.”

The Visiting Writers Series presentations feature a complimentary coffee and biscotti bar. The event is free; $3 donation is suggested for the Brookdale Community College Creative Writing Club. The monies are used to underwrite educational field trips for students. The Office of Student Life and Activities, and the Creative Writing Club co-sponsor the Series.
