Dr. Joshua Hren of the English Department and Honors College, recently published a book that is the subject of the Contemporary Catholic Writers Group’s upcoming dinner and discussion.

Published in December of 2017, “This Our Exile” is a collection of short stories that deal with the big questions in life. It has received great reviews, including Glenn Arbery, President of Wyoming Catholic College, who writes “This is deeply thoughtful new fiction, troubling and memorable, offering readers a fresh understanding of what faith and its contraries look like in our times.” The collection currently enjoys a five star ratings on Amazon.

In naming it the subject of their upcoming discussion, the Contemporary Catholic Writers Group writes “This Our Exile brings together short stories preoccupied with the eternal questions—incarnating them afresh through the singularities that mark our secular age. Here is a vibrant contribution to contemporary Catholic fiction that pinpoints those places in the heart that can come into existence only through suffering.” The discussion will be take place Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at Catholic University of American in Washington, DC.

The Contemporary Catholic Writer’s Group was created “to raise awareness and appreciation of literary works by living Catholic writers and to engage the CUA community in the current broader conversation regarding the future of the Catholic literary imagination.”
