AMHERST, Mass.-Novelist Sue Miller, a visiting writer at Amherst College, will read from her work at 8 p.m. on Monday, April 28, in the Pruyne Lecture Hall (Fayerweather 115) at the college. The event, sponsored by the Amherst College Creative Writing Center and the F. Scott Turow Fund, is free and open to the public and will be followed by refreshments.

Miller is the author of five novels that have been been beloved by readers and critics alike. As Publisher's Weekly put it, "Miller limns contemporary life in deft, sure strokes, with an unerring ear for the way parents and children talk; no one can parse a modern marriage as well as she can." And in a rave New York Times review, William Pritchard said, "Miller has never written better about love and lust."

Miller's most recent book, The Story of My Father: A Memoir, an account of a parent's affliction with Alzheimer's, will be published in March of this year by Knopf.

Miller lives and writes in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and currently teaches fiction at Amherst College. The Amherst College Creative Writing Center puts on a yearly reading series featuring both emerging and established authors.
