AMHERST, Mass.—Author Sue Miller will read from her work at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, in Pruyne Lecture Hall (Fayerweather 115) at Amherst College. Sponsored by the Amherst College Creative Writing Center, the event is open to the public at no charge.

Miller is the bestselling author of nine books of fiction, including The Good Mother and Inventing the Abbotts. Reviewing While I Was Gone, William H. Pritchard praised both the “patient, unfancy, locally rooted narration that has been Miller’s trademark” and Miller’s “commitment to rendering the weave and texture—above all, the tonality—of the everyday.” Miller’s forthcoming The Senator’s Wife offers another rich portrait of private lives; the book will be published early in 2008.

The Amherst College Creative Writing Center sponsors a yearly reading series featuring both emerging and established authors. For more information, please call 413/542-8200.
