Hamilton English Professor to Give Fiction Reading

By staff  |  Contact staff
Posted February 6, 1996
Lucy Ferriss, assistant professor of English at Hamilton College, will read from her latest works on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m., in the Fillius Events Barn at Hamilton College. Admission is free and open to the general public.

Ferriss will read from her latest novel, Against Gravity, as well as from other works in progress. Set in a quiet town in the Hudson Valley, Against Gravity tells the story of young adult, Gwyn "Stick" Stickley, and her determination to escape from her seemingly static yet volatile world.

Ferriss is the author of two previous novels, Philip's Girl and The Gated River, as well as essays in The New York Times, The Washington Post Book World, and Boston magazine. Her fiction has won national awards from the Faulkner Society and the National Endowment for the Arts, among others. She lives with her husband and their two sons in Clinton, where she heads the creative writing program at Hamilton.
