| Acclaimed writer and novelist Andrew O'Hagan will give a public talk, and read from his works, on Tuesday 13 March at the University of Glasgow. As part of a series of talks by eminent literary figures, Andrew O'Hagan, who was selected by the literary magazine Granta for their 2003 list of the top 20 young British novelists, will discuss his experiences as a published writer.

After working for the London Review of Books, O'Hagan published his first book The Missing in 1995 to considerable critical acclaim, being shortlisted for three literary awards. His debut novel Our Fathers (1999) was also nominated for a raft of awards including, the Booker Prize, the Whitbread First Novel Award, and the IMPAC Literary Award. His next novel Personality (2003) won the James Tait Black Award for fiction. His third novel, Be Near Me, was published in August 2006 by Faber and Faber to outstanding reviews and long-listed for the year's Booker Prize.

O'Hagan has also published non-fiction and edited a number of literary compilations. He is a contributing editor to both the London Review of Books and Granta, and writes occasional articles for the mainstream press. In 2001, he was named as a Goodwill Ambassador by the UK branch of UNICEF, and he has since been involved in fundraising efforts for the organisation.

The talk will take place at 5.30pm on 13 March at the Wolfson Medical Building, University of Glasgow. The event is free and open to the public.
