Calvin invites new authors for FFW event


This past weekend, April 17-19, Kevin Huizenga was featured at the 2008 Festival of Faith & Writing in Grand Rapids, Michigan, headlined by Pulitzer Prize-winning Michael Chabon, Man Booker Prize-winning Yann Martel, and multiple Newbery Award-winning Katherine Paterson.

"Kevin Huizenga, a graphic novelist, graduated from Calvin with an art degree in 1999. Time named Huizenga one of the top 10 comic book artists of the year in both 2005 and 2006. Huizenga's graphic novel, Curses, as well as many of his other stories, detail the life of an everyman character whom Huizenga dubs "Glenn Ganges," an average guy faced with theological, cosmological and mythical events in his Grand Rapids, MI, existence."

The Festival of Faith & Writing is a biennial gathering of readers and writers hosted by Calvin College. The festival's goal is to provide a vibrant community where people come together to discuss, celebrate, and explore the ways in which faith is represented in literature and how it plays out in our world today.
