Prepare for the collision of the real and surreal when two writers with distinct narrative voices - novelist Jim Krusoe and poet T.R. Hummer - visit The Literary Southwest on Friday, Nov. 1. The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Yavapai College Library's Susan N. Webb Community Room (Building 19, Room 147) on the Prescott campus. An audience Q&A session and a book signing follow the reading. All Literary Southwest programs are free and open to the public.

T. R. Hummer's poems have appeared in many journals, including The New Yorker, Slate, Commonweal, and Gulf Coast. He has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for poetry, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for poetry, the Hanes Poetry Prize, the Richard Wright Award for Artistic Excellence, and two Pushcart Prizes. The former editor of The Kenyon Review, New England Review, and The Georgia Review, he now teaches at Arizona State University.

Jim Krusoe has published two books of stories, "Blood Lake" and "Abductions."

His first novel, "Iceland," was published by Dalkey Archive Press. Since then he has had four novels published by Tin House Books: "Girl Factory," "Erased," "Toward You," and "Parsifal"; he has also published five books of poems.
