This is a preliminary call to gauge interest in a conference on George Saunders in New York City next year.
Organizers will seek to publish a volume of critical essays which will include papers presented at this conference (tentatively slated for April, 2013).
Please send a brief note to Brendan Beirne at email@example.com -- formal proposals are not required at this time.
George Saunders is the author of several books, including the short story collections CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, Pastoralia, and In Persuasion Nation, as well as a novella entitled The Brief and Frightening Reign of Phil. Saunders has also published essays and a children's book called The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip.
