The Work of Wolves, a novel by Kent Meyers, associate humanities professor and writer-in-residence at Black Hills State University, was recently selected for two separate literary programs – one in Redmond, Wash., and one at Augustana College in Sioux Falls.
Meyers, whose novel was selected for the “One City, One Book” program in Redmond, Wash., will travel to Redmond this fall to talk about the book with various groups that are reading it.
The Work of Wolves was also selected by Augustana College for a program that introduces freshmen to the college and its culture. Meyers will visit the college in October to discuss the book with them.
In addition to these speaking engagements, Meyers will also be presenting at this year’s South Dakota Festival of Books, which will be held in Deadwood Sept. 28-30. The festival will feature book signings, musical presentations, and panel discussions by many regional artists.
Meyers, who received his master’s degree in English from Washington State University, has been a member of the BHSU faculty since 1986. He has published four books: two novels, The Work of Wolves and The River Warren; a collection of essays; The Witness of Combines; and a collection of short stories, Light in the Crossing. He has also published fiction and non-fiction in national literary journals and has won awards for many of his stories.
