Visiting Writers Series: James Salter

When: Mon., Nov. 18, 7 p.m. 2013

James Salter flew fighter jets in the Korean War, and in this town it feels that must be said — especially since his first two novels, The Hunters and Cassada, are Air Force tales. But Salter's military days represent just one chapter in a story that he's still writing, at age 88: In April, Knopf released All That Is, a novel that The New York Times' Malcolm Jones said "demolished any talk of twilight with a single stroke." There's much to say about Salter, but you can hear the man himself at his Colorado College Visiting Writers Series appearance at 7 tonight in Gates Common Room (1025 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu). — Kirk Woundy
