2014 Puleo Visiting Writer David Hicks to Visit Upper School February 10th and 11th

Moravian Academy is pleased to welcome author David Hicks to the Upper School campus on Monday, February, 10, 2014 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. as our 2014 Puleo Visiting Writer.

This event, which includes a reading and Q&A session, will take place in the Melhado Dining Room, Walter Hall, and is open to any interested members of the Moravian Academy community.

A long-time college English professor, Mr. Hicks decided in his forties to stop writing about writers and become one himself. Since then, he has published short stories in: Glimmer Train, Colorado Review, Specs, Trachodon, Saranac Review, South Dakota Review, and GSU Review (now New South), and has written a novel-in-stories entitled, White Plains. His novel, The Ruins, was a 2011 New Rivers MVP Fiction finalist, 2012 New American Press Fiction Award finalist, and 2012 Engine Books Fiction Contest finalist.

Mr. Hicks attended Nazareth College of Rochester for his BA, Saint Bonaventure for his Masters, and NYU for his PhD. He currently resides in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, where he is a professor of English at Regis University in Denver.

From Monday, February 10th to Tuesday, February 11th, Mr. Hicks will also teach a total of five classes and address Upper School students during the Monday assembly.
