Renowned writer Lee K. Abbott, a professor at Ohio State University, has seven collections of short fiction to his credit, plus he has had works in Harper's Magazine, The Atlantic and several other esteemed publications. He has given the literary world characters that are relatable yet moving, recognizable yet not autobiographical — that is the stuff of great writing. Abbott visits Webster University's Pearson House (8260 Big Bend Boulevard) at 1:30 p.m. for a free book-signing and reading.
