Among The Wild Mulattos

Tom Williams, whose book Among the Wild Mulattos was named one of the best of 2015 by National Public Radio, will read from his work at 5 p.m. Monday, April 18, in Roosevelt University's seventh floor Gage Building at 18 South Michigan Avenue.

"You could call him an author to watch, but he's really a writer we should have been watching a long time ago," said NPR's Michael Schaub, who defined Williams as "an uncompromising writer with a fiercely original voice . . . (who) questions the idea of human uniqueness."

His most recent work, a short story collection titled Among the Wild Mulattos and Other Tales, was published in 2015 by Texas Review Press and has since put him on the map as one of today's promising writers.

Currently the chair of English at Morehead State University in Kentucky, Williams is also the author of The Mimic's Own Voice, published in 2011, and Don't Start Me Talkin' in 2014. His story "Dear Dad" appeared in the anthology Daddy Cool in 2013 and he was also a collaborator on Four Fathers in 2014.

Part of Roosevelt's Spring Reading Series, the event is free and open to the public.
