The president and BGSU Creative Writing

Posted by bgsuenglish on December 1, 2014

When President Barack Obama went shopping on Saturday, he picked up a book by BGSU MFA alum Anthony Doerr!

“Among the books in the president’s shopping bags for mature readers were “Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune, Truth and Faith in the New China” by New Yorker writer Evan Osnos, “Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End” by surgeon Atul Gawande and “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr.”
