Don DeLillo, Paul Auster, William Kennedy, T.C. Boyle, Marlon James and a host of other literary luminaries join Brown’s Department of Literary Arts for a three-day festival of readings and performances honoring the work of novelist and Brown professor emeritus Robert Coover. Coover, who taught at Brown for 33 years, “broke open the carapace of postwar American realism to reveal a fantastical funhouse of narrative possibilities” (The Guardian) and “is probably the funniest and most malicious [of all postmodern writers], mixing up broad social and political satire with vaudeville turns, lewd pratfalls and clever wordplays” (The New York Times). Held at various locations around the Brown campus.
