What I Talk About When I Talk About Writing: A reading & talk by Haruki Murakami

April 10, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Manoa Campus, Campus Center Ballroom Add to Calendar

The University of Hawai'i at Manoa is pleased to welcome acclaimed Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami, who has gained an international following with his daringly original fiction.

He will be giving a free public reading and talk (“What I Talk About When I Talk About Writing”) on Tuesday, April 10, at the UH Manoa Campus Center Ballroom at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available in the nearby Lower Campus Parking Structure ($6).

At this event Murakami will read the short stories “The Rise and Fall of Sharpie Cakes” and “The Mirror” from the collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman. Audio or video recording, photography, or broadcasting of any kind is strictly prohibited at this event.

Murakami is best known for his novels Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (1985), Norwegian Wood (1987), The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle (1994-95), Kafka on the Shore (2002), and most recently, 1Q84 (2009-10). His many awards include the 2006 Franz Kafka Prize, the 2006 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award, the 2009 Jerusalem Prize, and the 2011 Catalonia International Prize. As noted in a recent cover story of The New York Times Magazine, “…Three decades into his career, Murakami has established himself as the unofficial laureate of Japan – arguably its chief imaginative ambassador, in any medium, to the world.”

This event is sponsored by the UHM Department of East Asian Languages & Literatures and the UHM College of Languages, Linguistics, & Literature.
