Oklahoma is the setting for Prairie Fever, Michael Parker’s seventh and latest novel, a book that pulls the reader into what one critic calls a “whole family acting out what can and can’t be forgotten, against the backdrops of prairie and range—characters so magnificently and sometimes comically stubborn I really couldn’t put the book down.” Along with his novels, Parker, who will be WSU’s Visiting Distinguished Writer this spring, has published fiction and nonfiction in some of the country’s top literary journals and has won, among many honors, a PEN/Hemingway Award for First Fiction, a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, and O. Henry Awards three times for his short stories. Registration is required. Click to register.
