Anthony Bukoski, winner of the Council for Wisconsin Writers Edna Ferber Fiction Book Award for his short story collectionThe Blondes of Wisconsin, will read from and discuss his work.
The New York Times Book Review has called him “a sure-handed, lyrical writer.”
Born in the East End of Superior, Anthony began his undergraduate work at Wisconsin State University Superior. He left after a year, joined the Marines in the summer of 1964, and went to Vietnam. He returned three years later and finished school. Next it was on to Brown University for an MA in English, then to Iowa for an MFA in fiction from the Writer’s Workshop in 1976, and a PhD in English in 1984. For the greater part of his career and until his retirement, Bukoski was a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
