Thursday, 23 April, 4-6pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
Hillsborough author Michael Malone will read and sign copies of his newly published novel, The Four Corners of the Sky, at an event that will also be a celebration of the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library’s acquisition of his papers.
The Four Corners of the Sky, described as “a novel of love, sacrifice, and the inexplicable bonds that hold families together,” is Malone’s ninth. Earlier titles, in genres ranging from satire to mystery, include Handling Sin and Time’s Witness. Malone is also the author of short stories, an academic study of male sexuality in the movies, and plays and screenplays. In addition, he has written for the popular soap operas Another World and One Life to Live. For his work as head writer of One Life to Live, he won an Emmy. His other awards include the Edgar, the O. Henry Prize, and the Writers Guild Award. Malone has taught at Yale, the University of Pennsylvania and Swarthmore; he is currently visiting professor of the practice in English and theater studies at Duke.
The Malone Papers chiefly comprise drafts and galleys of his novels and other writings, personal and professional correspondence, and teaching materials. Also included are book tour and other promotional materials, videocassettes, audiocassettes, and digital files.
