The two-time Pulitzer finalist has authored 16 novels in his four-decade career – including Underworld, White Noise, Cosmopolis, and End Zone – and tomorrow night, he reads in Jessen Auditorium in Homer Rainey Hall, the southwesternmost building on the Main Mall's six-pack. (He previously read at the same location in 2005, not long after his archives arrived at the HRC.)

His appearance dovetails with the HRC's Literature and Sport exhibition, which runs through Sunday, Aug. 4.

Tickets are free, and doors open at 6:20pm for members (6:30pm for nonmembers). Visit the HRC website for complete details.
