The University of Portland’s Schoenfeldt Visiting Writers Series is offering a talk by a writer who is not a visitor, but who has earned acclaim well beyond the campus.  

Brian Doyle will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, in Buckley Center Auditorium. He is editor of the University of Portland’s magazine and has written books of essays, poems, nonfiction, and fiction, notably the novels Mink River and The Plover. His new collection of essays, Children & Other Wild Animals, will be published in October by Oregon State University Press.

At 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 26, the series welcomes Alice McDermott, which some are calling the finest Catholic novelist in America. McDermott is the author of seven novels, among them Charming Billy, which won the National Book Award in 1998, and, most recently, Someone. Her novels That Night, At Weddings and Wakes, and After This were all finalists for the Pulitzer Prize.
