Join Ulrick Casimir at the Duck Store for readings from his exciting short story collection!

The Duck Store (13th and Kincaid), 3:00 PM, Saturday, March 16th


Career Instructor Dr. Ulrick Casimir will read selections from his short story collection Children of the Night: Stories this Saturday, March 16th, at the 13th Ave. Duck Store.

Children of the Night: Stories (2018) comes to us from Corpus Callosum Press, who write that the collection:

explores the bonds that are forged, strained, broken, and forged anew as his restless and at times desperate protagonists attempt to navigate the murky byways of modern life. In ten stories that blur and ultimately transcend genre boundaries as they upend readers’ expectations, Casimir paints, in lush, clear-eyed prose, an unflinchingly honest portrait—by turns grim and hopeful—of the ceaseless struggle to stay alert and alive on the winding, fog-strewn roads of twenty-first-century America.

A native of North Carolina, Dr. Casimir has taught writing, literature, and film at colleges and universities across the country.  He holds a B.A. from North Carolina State University and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; he also holds an M.A. and a Ph.D., both in English, from the University of Oregon, where for the past several years he has taught writing and film for the English department, Cinema Studies, and the Clark Honors College. 

Dr. Casimir's scholarly work has appeared in the film journal Jump Cut; his short fiction has most recently appeared in PlainsongsChildren of the Night: Stories is his debut story collection.
