Cape Cod Community College is launching the Bigger Boat Visiting Writers Series. Co-sponsored by the Creative Writing Club and the Language and Literature Department’s writing program, Bigger Boat will feature published writers and student writers reading their works each month.

The first reading will take place on Wednesday, October 21, from 6:30 to 7:30 PM on the Zoom platform. Students will open the reading with haiku written in Rebecca Griffin’s creative writing class. The featured writer will be Chris L. Terry, who will be reading from his novel, “Black Card,” an NPR book of the year. Described by NPR as “hilariously searing,” “Black Card” is about a mixed-race punk bassist with an imaginary friend. Mr. Terry’s debut novel, “Zero Fade,” was on Best of 2013 lists by Slate and Kirkus Reviews.

Mr. Terry lives in Los Angeles, where he teaches creative writing and works as a screenwriter.
