15 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, IA 52240
Please join us with Writers' Workshop alum Rafael Frumkin, who will read from and talk about his new book, Confidence. "Confidence is an exuberant assault on contemporary wellness culture, a tale of con-men so talented they con even themselves. But it's also a very human story about the blind spots we all have, how our need for love and connection can sometimes lead us down all the wrong paths. A delightful, irreverent, and poignant novel."-- Nathan Hill
Frumkin is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the Medill School of Journalism. His first novel, The Comedown, was published by Henry Holt in 2018 to critical acclaim. His Collection, Bugsy & Other Stories, is forthcoming. He lives with his partner, two cats, and one dog in Carbondale, Illinois, where he is an assistant professor of creative writing at Southern Illinois University.
