Campus hosts visit by Chicago writer Mike Czyzniejewski
He’s a fiction writer, editor, and Wrigley Field vendor and he’ll be on campus Monday (April 9) for various events throughout the day. Mike Czyzniejewski’s visit is sponsored by the Campus Writers’ Union, Sheepshead Review and Humanistic Studies. His newest book, Chicago Stories, is a collection of dramatic, usually funny fictions — each told in the persona of a famous Chicagoan (or even buildings, like Soldier Field or the water tower). His writing has been described as “both wry-funny and absurd-funny, plunging into the everyday and the outrageous.” More on Czyniejewski.
