CARROLLTON, Ga. -- Award-winning author Tim O'Brien will visit the University of West Georgia later this month.
O'Brien's work includes The Things They Carried, a series of stories about the Vietnam War. His writing is considered among the best about war from a soldier's perspective and about combat in Vietnam in particular.
At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21, O'Brien will be at UWG's Coliseum, where he will read from The Things They Carried and sign copies of his books.
He will also discuss his work in Kathy Cashen Hall in UWG's Humanities Building from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22. Space is limited, so anyone who plans to attend is encouraged to arrive early.
Both events are free and open to the public.
O'Brien has published eight books of stories, fiction and nonfiction.
