As Writer-in-Residence, Hebert will organize the Writers in the Library series, sponsored by the UT Libraries and the UT Department of English. Writers in the Libraries brings local, regional, and nationally-known authors to the John C. Hodges Library to read from their works.
Hebert teaches in UT’s Creative Writing Program. His first novel, The Boiling Season, was published by HarperCollins in 2012.
Hebert graduated from Antioch College, where he also worked at the Antioch Review. He earned an MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan, and was awarded its prestigious Hopwood Award for fiction. He has worked as an editor at the University of Michigan Press and as a research assistant to the author Susan Cheever.
As Writer-in-Residence, Hebert will have access to the resources of the UT Libraries and a quiet retreat in the Hodges Library to work on his next novel. His appointment begins August 1, 2012.
The position of Writer in Residence was established in 1998 and in 2005 was named in honor of the late Jack Reese, a former chancellor of the university, longtime UT English professor, and avid support of the UT Libraries and the local writing community.
