Everything Everywhere: Ron Hansen in Lafayette on Thursday

Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2012


 Kick off the new year with a literary evening in Lafayette, Calif: Writer Ron Hansen M.A. '95 will be at the Lafayette Library & Learning Center on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 7:30 p.m. He'll be talking about the writing life—and work that's taken him from The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford to Mariette in Ecstasy and, most recently, A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion.

Hansen is the Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J. Professor of Arts & Humanities at SCU, the author of 10 books, and recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. He's also the literary editor for Santa Clara Magazine.

Combine Ron Hansen's work into a Hollywood movie & you'd see a total blocbuster!
