Warren County Community College will host the book release reading for “Greetings from Gravipause,” the new novel authored by Brian Bradford, a Professor of English at the college.
The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place on Thursday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in room 123ABC. Before his reading, Bradford will be introduced by his colleague, Professor BJ Ward. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. The reading will be followed by a book signing.
Bradford is a recipient of the Henfield Transatlantic Review Award for Fiction and has published work in many small press publications including New Blood and Black Ice. He holds a MFA in Creative Writing from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He is a full professor and co-director of the Creative Writing Program at Warren County Community College, where he has received the Golden Eagle Award, an honor that recognizes “outstanding service and commitment to the students” of the college.
“Greetings from Gravipause” is published by Jaded Ibis Press, based in Seattle, whose mission is “to publish and produce art that is intellectually, culturally and environmentally sustainable.”
About the new book, novelist Ellen Akins writes, “Whether it’s a fully realized, multi-faceted musical composition or a unique universe, or both, in ‘Greetings from Gravipause,’ Brian Bradford has crafted a whole world, at once familiar and strange, out of language very much his own, and now ours—which is what we ask of art.” Greetings from Gravipause is Bradford’s first novel. It is available nationally through Amazon and other retailers.
The WCCC Visiting Authors Series is supported by a grant from the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission. All facilities comply with ADA regulations and are fully accessible.
