Critically acclaimed Hungarian writers on campus Wednesday

September 24, 2013

Acclaimed Hungarian writers György Dragomán and Anna Szabó, both former Beloit College exchange students, will return to campus to hold a public reading on Wednesday, Sept. 25. at 8 p.m. in the courtyard of the Wright Museum of Art.

Dragomán is best known for his 2005 novel, The White King, which was excerpted in The New Yorker and the Paris Review and made him famous in Europe. Szabó has published eight books of poetry and is also a children's author and successful playwright.

During their week-long visit, they will also do a public reading, lead a faculty forum and visit classes.

Dragomán and Szabó, who are now married, credit their time at Beloit as formative in their development as artists.

Their trip to Beloit is funded in part by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
