Rahul Mehta, the author of Quarantine, a short story collection that has earned admiring reviews, will be on campus February 15th at 7:00 p.m. Robert Olen Butler has called this “an extraordinary book that transcends gender and race and culture and sexual identity to speak to our universal humanity and the quest we all share for a self.” Mr. Mehta’s fiction has appeared in Epoch, the Kenyon Review, the Sun Fourteen Hills, and elsewhere.
Quarantine was published by Harper Perennial in 2011 and Random House India in 2010. Mr. Metha is an Out Magazine “Out 100” honoree for 2011. He is currently working on a novel to be published by Harper Collins in 2014. Mr. Mehta received an MFA from Syracuse University and is now a visiting lecturer at Alfred University.
The “Evening with Rahul Mehta” will be held in SET 215. Refreshments will be served. The event is sponsored by the Department of English and Humanities, Kaleidiscope Coalition, Drama Club, and Rainbow Union.
