Ofstad Reading Series Welcomes Fantasy Author


Fantasy author Alexandra Rowland will participate in a seminar and reading session at 4 p.m. Oct. 7 in Baldwin Hall Little Theatre as part of the Clayton B. Ofstad Reading Series.

Rowland is the author of eight fantasy books including “A Taste of Gold and Iron,” “Some by Virtue Fall” and “Running Close to the Wind.”

The seminar will help attendees, whether they are about to start writing a new story, preparing to run a Dungeons & Dragons campaign or have always been curious about how writers come up with such immersive fantastical settings. The seminar will be followed by a reading from Rowland’s upcoming book, “Running Close to the Wind.”

In addition to being an author, Rowland is a four-time Hugo Award-nominated podcaster as well as a 2012 Truman graduate. Find them at alexandrarowland.net, or on Twitter and Instagram as @_alexrowland.

Thanks to the generosity and vision of Odessa Ofstad, the Clayton B. Ofstad Readings Series welcomes talented, renowned and deeply engaging guest writers and scholars from around the world to campus. Her donation was made in honor of her husband, Clayton B. Ofstad, who joined the Language and Literature Department at Truman in 1967 where he taught until his retirement in 1987.
