Hardy Jones

7 p.m., Tuesday March 12

The University of Central Oklahoma Department of English will host author Hardy Jones, Ph.D., for a free and open to the public reading at 7 p.m., March 12 in the university’s Pegasus Theatre located in the Liberal Arts Building.           

Jones, assistant professor in the Department of English and Foreign Languages and director of the Creative Writing Program at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma, will read from many of his professional writings.

“This event will prepare our students for the professional world by providing them with the opportunity to hear a publishing novelist and memoirist read from his work and then answer their questions about craft, the publishing market, and the writing life,” said Stephen Garrison, Ph.D., professor in the Department of English.

One of Jones’ most popular works is a novel titled “Every Bitter Thing,” published by Black Lawrence Press in 2010. It is a story of a 12-year-old boy growing up in an abusive home struggling with his relationships with his parents and being a victim of sexual abuse outside his home.

Jones holds an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Memphis and a Ph.D. from the University of Louisiana.

Jones’ fiction and nonfiction has appeared in more than 20 journals. He has received numerous awards for his writing including a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts in 2001 and 2006 for his memoir “People of the Good God.”
