Two interesting events are coming up this month in Butler University's visiting writer series.
On April 9, the university is hosting Chris Abani, a Nigerian author who spent several years as a political prisoner in his war-torn country. His books include "Song for Night," "The Virgin of Flames" and "Becoming Abigail."
On April 16, Michael Chabon will be in town to discuss his books, which include "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh," "Wonder Boys," "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" (which won the Pulitzer Prize) and "The Yiddish Policemen's Union."
Both lectures take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Atherton Union Reilly Room. Admission is free; no reservation required.
