The Franco-American Collection at the University of Southern Maine invites
you to join us on Zoom on Thursday, May 26, 2022, 5:30 pm-6:30 pm, for a

We are excited to welcome Ron Currie, a novelist, screenwriter, and native
Mainer. His work has been translated into 15 languages, and has won the New
York Public Library Young Lions Award, the Metcalf Award from the American
Academy of Arts and Letters, the Alex Award from the American Library
Association, and the Pushcart Prize. As a screenwriter he's worked, most
recently, on the Apple TV+ series EXTRAPOLATIONS, scheduled for release in
2022. His short fiction, nonfiction, essays and criticism have been
published in the New York Times, Salon, The Believer, The Chicago Tribune,
and many other venues. Currie will be reading from a new, as-yet
unpublished novel set in the Franco-American community in Waterville. Be
the first to learn about this new novel! A Q & A will follow the reading.
