Stonecoast MFA Faculty, Morgan Talty, receives accolades

Morgan Talty

Morgan Talty’s (Penobscot Indian Nation) national bestselling and critically acclaimed story collection “Night of the Living Rez,” was reviewed for “The New York Review of Books” by Kerri Arsenault recently. Arsenault says, “Morgan Talty’s stories about a Penobscot family are set where Maine’s millions of tourists don’t tend to go: in places damaged by toxic pollutants or opioids, bankrupted by government inaction, devoured by poverty, haunted by our country’s colonial past.” Talty is a faculty member for the Stonecoast MFA Creative Writing program in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences here at USM. Enormous congratulations to Morgan and all his literary accomplishments!
