DURHAM, N.H.- The N.H. Author Series, hosted by the Friends of Dimond Library at the University of New Hampshire, will present sci-fi writer James Patrick Kelly on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012, at 2 p.m. in the Dimond Library’s 5th floor reading room.
Kelly’s short novel, “Burn”, won the Science Fiction Writers of America’s Nebula Award in 2007. Kelly has won the World Science Fiction Society’s Hugo Award twice: in 1996, for his novelette, “Think Like A Dinosaur,” and in 2000, for his novelette, “Ten to the Sixteenth to One.”
His most recent book, a collection of stories, is titled “The Wreck of the Godspeed.” With John Kessel, Kelly has coedited several science fiction anthologies that include a range of well-known authors. He is a frequent contributor to Asimov's Science Fiction, and for the past several years has contributed a non-fiction column to Asimov's, "On the Net."
Kelly teaches in the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast MFA writing program.
The NH Authors series takes place three times a year, bringing to UNH writers who are New Hampshire natives or who live or teach in the Granite State.
Local author Rebecca Rule leads the talks, which take place in front of a live audience for future broadcasting and web streaming on www.nhptv.org/authors.
The University of New Hampshire, founded in 1866, is a world-class public research university with the feel of a New England liberal arts college. A land, sea, and space-grant university, UNH is the state's flagship public institution, enrolling 12,200 undergraduate and 2,300 graduate students.
