Author of five previous novels, including the best selling Hunting Unicorns and critically acclaimed Summer of the Bear, Pollen has tackled a broad spectrum of subjects from Cold War intrigue to decline of the British Aristocracy to the immigration issues of the US/Mexican Border.

The Visiting Writer Series, co-presented with University Libraries, welcomes six writers each semester—two each in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Participating writers meet with MFA students in small afternoon workshops and then present an evening reading, open to the general public. All readings take place in the Fenwick Library Main Reading Room, 2001 Fenwick, on Mason’s Fairfax Campus.
