Kendall Lecture Series: Phil Klay
Join us for Phil Klay’s keynote presentation “From the Front Lines of War” Phil Klay is a graduate of Dartmouth College and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. He served in Iraq’s Anbar Province from January 2007 to February 2008 as a Public Affairs Officer. After being discharged, Klay received his MFA from Hunter College. He is the author of Redeployment (The Penguin Press), a powerful collection of short stories that takes readers to the front lines of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In his book and public lectures, Klay explores the complex feelings of brutality, faith, guilt, and fear that a soldier experiences during war, while also revealing the isolation and despair hat can accompany a soldier’s homecoming. With his stark, realistic depictions of war, Klay’s book has been praised as “one of the best debuts of the year” by The Oregonian and author Karen Russell calls his writing “searing and powerful, unsparing of its characters and its readers.” Redeployment won the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction and the 2015 Chautauqua Prize. His writing has also appeared in the New York Times, Granta, Newsweek, The Daily Beast, New York Daily News, Tin House, and The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2012. After the presentation, join us for the book signing and reception! The Kendall Lecture Series was established to honor the liberal arts tradition at Cardinal Stritch University and the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi through the philanthropy of Nancy, ’87, and Lee, H’88, Kendall with the purpose of bringing speakers of national prominence to our community.
