Liam Callanan

I'm the author of two novels -- The Cloud Atlas (an Edgar Award finalist set in WWII Alaska; to learn more, see http://bit.ly/cloudatlas71) and All Saints (set in a beachfront high school in California; http://bit.ly/1jxdUHf) -- and a short story collection, Listen and Other Stories (more scoop, even a short video at http://bit.ly/listen2liam). I teach in the English department of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which hosts an awesome creative writing program (to judge from its students, anyway). I also write shorter things, including essays, short stories, and public radio commentaries (listen in at http://bit.ly/radiofreeliam). I don't write poetry, but envy those who do, and am generally a big fan, which is how I came to create and co-executive produce the Poetry Everywhere animated film series, which you can view on iTunes and Youtube, and found the Eat Local::Read Local program, which distributes local poets' poems to diners at local restaurants during National Poetry Month. I was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Los Angeles, but now call Wisconsin home, and root for every last one of its teams, especially the Brewers. That about covers it, but there's more about me, my writing, and even a literary children's guide to Paris at http://bit.ly/amazonaboutliam. Happy reading!
