Richard Burgin on the Art of Fiction

"There is no voice in American literature today like Richard Burgin." That's what Bloomsbury Press wrote about author Richard Burgin. The winner of five Pushcart Prizes joins us to talk about building suspense, crafting the short story, and what he has learned translating interviews from Jorge Luis Borges and Isaac Bashevis Singer.

Richard Burgin speaks on Wed., Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m. at UNLV's Barrick Museum Auditorium. The event is held by the UNLV's Black Mountain Institute.
